What active-travel initiatives would you like to support in your local area?
A complete car parking review with action plan and timescale to prioritise residents first and encourage the visitor car travel to Blenheim Palace by promoting alternative bus and rail travel avoiding existing roads and town centre.
Ensure there is an infrastructure plan is in place before housing to ensure the integration of all services are met and thereby avoid existing strain . This would include cycling, public transport and health and well being are integrated to sustain our communities.
Please summarise your views on the future for transport in Oxfordshire.
I am in favour of moving towards a neighbourhood which is less car-dependent (and not used as a cut-through) and has better public transport and provision for public travel but, if they are going to work, changes need to be consulted on within communities before implementation. The recent LTN and CPZ failures were due to a lack of explanation and communication. 2030 is a realistic goal.
