To consider a consultation document from Oxfordshire County Council in respect of an application for parking restrictions at Avenue Two, Witney.
The committee considered a consultation document from Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) in respect of an application for parking restrictions at Avenue Two, Witney. It was reported that officers and the Chair had contacted OCC to establish further details and seeking guidance on relevant issues that could be raised.
Members expressed their disappointment that the application had been received prior to the determination of the adjacent planning application by West Oxfordshire District Council. During discussion the committee considered the current use of the area for parking, access to nearby industrial estates and the Country Park, pedestrian/cycle safety and the ambition for an active travel route in the area.
It was suggested and agreed that an objection be raised incorporating the concerns raised at the meeting and as part of the planning application consultation. In addition a letter should be sent from the Town Clerk to OCC, copied to the local County Councillors, regarding the Town Council concerns.
1. That, the response as appended to these minutes be submitted with regard to the application for parking restrictions at Avenue 2, Witney: and
2. That, a letter be sent to Oxfordshire County Council, copied to local County Councillors, by the Town Clerk with regard to the application.
