Green Recovery – Oxford City Council
Posted on 6th October, 2020
Oxford City Council’s recovery revitalised the city centre to benefit communities, create liveable streets, start green recovery and improve air quality.
As a result of Covid-19, Oxford City Council has implemented a wide range of measures to create liveable streets, start the green recovery and improve air quality. These include creating one-way pavements to free up pavement space; installing 130 bike parking spaces at Park and Rides; creating and running an inclusive transport and movement focus group; free parking at Park and Rides; and pedestrianising streets including St Michael’s Street and George Street. In addition, the council has installed temporary bus gates and supported the pedestrianisation of North Parade. The Council made £100,000 of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) available for the Restart phase, in addition to the £134,000 which the Government allocated to Oxford as part of its Reopening High Streets Safely Fund.
