"Extension to the existing Seacourt Park and Ride to accommodate new car parking, a single storey building to provide a waiting area and toilets for customers, cycle parking, lighting, CCTV, ticket machines, new pedestrian and cycle access, landscaping together with reorganisation of the layout of existing car parking spaces, repositioning of turning circle, bus pickup and drop-off and other works incidental to the development"
There are lots of valid reasons to object to Oxford City Council’s proposed extension of the Park &Ride, Botley Road.

And importantly badgers and other wildlife in this rich and delightful open space will suffer immensely.
Oxford/ Oxfordshire’s wildlife is losing out as our Green Fields are developed. The area under threat is an important area of Green Belt/ Flood plain which sustains a variety of flora and fauna/woodland and a variety of species including badgers and bats.
Objections are being submitted by the local resident action group backed by other concerned groups. The Flood Alliance say the plans are against the Council's own policies and that an attempt to
do extend the car park was refused by Gov. Inspector in 1997 for reasons (Green Belt and floodplain) that are even more applicable today.
Council claims that a covenant prevents them from building another car deck (to go higher) on the existing site have been debunked.
Campaign to Protect Rural England, The Oxford Green Belt Network and Local Flood Plain Alliance objections are scathing. We recommend reading them online (on the planning website application documents) if you have time.
To object send a letter or email to Oxford City Council quoting reference 16/02745/CT3. Give your full name and address.
All comments received up to the time of the planning decision in February will be considered even though the 'official' consultation period has ended.
