Cowley LTNs survey results

Published by admin on

Oxfordshire County Council on 21 Jan 2021 decided in favour of trialling three low-traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) in the Cowley area of Oxford. This followed the publication of survey results asking residents their opinions on the project, in line with updated guidance from the Department for Transport. 

The survey ran 23 November to 18 December 2020. There were 969 responses from residents of the three LTNs and 1,464 responses overall. The 969 represents more than 15% of the households in the three LTNs, which is an above-average response rate for local authority consultations.

The survey showed a favourable response to the trials. People indicating “fully support” or “support with reservations” outnumbered “do not support” by greater than 2-to-1. On a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood basis, the picture ranged from 1.6:1 in favour in Church Cowley to 4.2:1 in favour in Florence Park, with Temple Cowley in-between at 2.6:1.
