Horse and carriage plan falls at final hurdle

First published in News

PLANS to allow horse drawn carriages to carry tourists through the streets of Oxford have been turned down.

Oxford City Council rejected the plan at a full council meeting tonight.

Councillors had concerns about the health of horses in the summer sun, congestion and the safety of other road users.

Ed Turner said: "My concern is around traffic, animal welfare, safety of cyclists, motorists and pedestrians.

"I just don't think Oxford city centre is the right place for this."
