CONSULTATION – Market Square (Witney) – Proposed Traffic Calming & Parking Amendments


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make the above order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and all other enabling powers. The Order will further amend the Oxfordshire County Council (Various Roads – West Oxfordshire) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting and Permitted Parking) Order 2012 so as to make changes in Market Square, Witney to accommodate a longer bus stop by moving the existing road hump slightly northwards.

The Council proposes under Section 90 of the Highways Act 1980 to construct a flat top road hump with a nominal height 100mm, ramp gradients of 1:15 and extending 7 metres at Market Square in Witney, at a point approximately 66 metres north of its junction with Corn Street. The proposed road hump will replace and be to the same specification as the existing road hump located approximately 52 metres north of the Corn Street junction.
To accommodate the above, on the west side of the road, an 11 metre length of 30 minute waiting (8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday) will be removed and replaced with No Waiting at Any Time. The length of the bus stop area will also be increased to extend over where the old hump was.
Documents giving more detailed particulars of the Order are available for public inspection online by visiting:

or in person at County Hall, New Road, Oxford, OX1 1ND, between 8.30am & 4.30pm Monday to Friday; and at WODC Town Centre Shop, 3 Welch Way, Witney, OX28 6JH from 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, and from 9am to 5pm Fridays.

The County Council will consider any objections and representations received in response to this notice. They may be disseminated widely for these purposes and made available to the public.
