RESPONSE TO OXFORDSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL’S ‘LONG LIST’ OF SCHEMES TO BE DEVELOPED WITHIN LOCAL TRANSPORT PLAN 3, PERIOD 2011 TO 2016


1. Oxford Pedestrians Association (OxPA) welcomes the inclusion of Scheme number OX53 ‘Pedestrian network development and promotion’ in the preliminary Long List prepared by the County.

2. A County Walking Policy should be developed to substantiate projects included in the Long List and to underpin Scheme number OX53. The Walking Policy should establish the principles which will determine the development of a Pedestrian Network, many of which are illustrated in OxPA’s publication ‘A More Walkable Oxford’. We request that this publication be considered as part of this submission, it can be downloaded in pdf format from OxPA’s website www.oxpa.org.uk (See under ‘Recent Publications’ on the site’s front page). Examples of issues that need to be addressed include:

3. The following schemes should be included in the Long List, possibly as ‘sub-schemes’ to be delivered through Scheme OX53.

5. New ‘daytime’ walking routes to be created, and included in the Long List
