Plot 12, Edmund Halley Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire
10 October 2016
Erection of a 4 storey office building with associated access, pedestrian links, car parking for 203 vehicles, and new landscaping scheme including partial regrading of existing landscaping bund.
Although, in principle, this development appears to be unobjectionable, the Transport Statement clearly provides erroneous and misleading information, for example, regarding journey times by taxi from Oxford Rail Station (10 minutes), and the future provision of a rail service to a new station at the Science Park (no confirmation that this will happen, no timescale yet defined and no funding identified). The assessment of traffic-generation effects is thus questionable, and should be carried out more rigorously before consent is granted.
