The Leys Traffic Calming

To receive the report of the Project Officer.


The Committee received and considered the report of the Project Officer.


Members discussed the additional informal survey responses received from residents of the surrounding area at The Leys on an Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) designed traffic calming scheme, as requested by the town council in 2018.


Further information was required following an OCC consultation in 2022 if the town council still thought the scheme was warranted. Members felt the responses pointed more to the calming being installed for road safety, rather than the reduction of Anti-Social Behaviour, although this was still noted as an issue.


Members asked if the scheme could be redesigned to incorporate safety measures around the crossing point between the church path and the tree lined avenue across the Leys.


Members voted, the proposal to support the scheme was carried, with voting as follows:


In Favour             6

Against  0

Abstentions         1




1.      That, the report be noted and,

2.      That, a response is sent to Oxfordshire County Council advising support of the scheme with a request to re-evaluate the crossing from the Church to the Recreation Ground.
