Summary of Decision
The Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development has:
1. Approved the scope and proposals for the Oxford Street West Scheme area and the investment required to design the corresponding projects.
2. Approved capital expenditure of £2.442m to progress the design for the items outlined in 1.2 above.
Reasons for Decision
The projects proposed within the Oxford Street West Scheme area are being progressed as part of wider OSP initiatives and are complementary to the Oxford Street design. The interventions aim to reduce traffic reduction in Marylebone and Mayfair and enhance traffic resilience in the surrounding network through the introduction of right-hand turning movements at two junctions to the north of Oxford Street resulting in shorter vehicular journeys.
Expenditure is required to progress the design of the Oxford Street West projects to allow for their construction in 2025.
