Central Oxfordshire Travel Plan

Introduction

The Central Oxfordshire Travel Plan has been developed by Oxfordshire County Council as part of its countywide Local Transport and Connectivity Plan (LTCP).

We consulted with residents across Oxfordshire earlier this year and received over 1,000 responses to the LTCP.

The LTCP was approved by council in July 2022 and sets a clear vision to deliver a net-zero transport system that enables Oxfordshire to thrive, protects the environment and makes the county a better place to live for all residents.

The LTCP includes ambitious targets such as:

  • reducing 1 in 4 car trips by 2030
  • delivering a net-zero transport network by 2040 and
  • having zero, or as close as possible, road fatalities or life-changing injuries by 2050.

To achieve this, we are now developing area travel plans across Oxfordshire. The first to be developed is the Central Oxfordshire Travel Plan covering Oxford, Kidlington, Eynsham, Botley, Cumnor, Kennington and Wheatley.

Background

The Central Oxfordshire Travel Plan sets out our vision to develop a world-leading, innovative, inclusive and carbon neutral transport system with a focus on how people move quickly and safely around the area.

In particular, we need to look at options that free up the limited road space we have in Central Oxfordshire to create a place where buses are fast, affordable and reliable, where people can walk and cycle, in pleasant and safe environments, and where high polluting, unnecessary, individual car journeys take a back seat so that zero-emission buses, taxis and delivery vans are the norm, and that those who need to take essential journeys by car can do so without congestion.

We are proposing a set of 22 actions to help achieve a sustainable and reliable transport system across the Central Oxfordshire area, including three major transport proposals for Oxford City: traffic filters, a workplace parking levy and zero emission zone.

The three key projects will be subject to detailed and separate consultations, with the first, on traffic filters, open for public consultation until October 13, 2022.

Have your say

The purpose of this Central Oxfordshire Travel Plan survey is to gather your views and feedback on the broader aims of the draft travel plan for Central Oxfordshire and the actions we have identified as a result of the resident and stakeholder feedback to the LTCP consultation earlier this year. We encourage you to read the documents provided before you complete the survey. The Equalities Impact Assessment is a draft document that will be reviewed following public engagement before being finalised.

Due to the period of mourning for the Queen we have extended the closing date for the Central Oxfordshire Travel Plan to October 13, 2022.
