2. THE OXFORDSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL (VARIOUS ROADS - SOUTH OXFORDSHIRE) (PROHIBITION AND RESTRICTION OF WAITING AND PERMITTED PARKING) (VARIATION NO. 16) ORDER 2017
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on 4 September 2017 Oxfordshire County Council made the above orders under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and all other enabling powers. Order 1. comes into force on 18 September and order 2. for Henley on 11 September. The effect of the orders is twofold; to update on-street Pay and Display parking methods in Abingdon and Henley, and to update procedures for the application and use ofVisitors Parking Permits available to the holders of Residents Parking Permits in Abingdon and Henley. Pay and Display Parking
1.) New pay and display older obsolete machines. The new machines will only issue standard pay and display parking tickets. Payments will be by coins of appropriate denomination to the amount of the Parking Charge or by such other payment method as specified on a Ticket Machine (e.g. card).The new machines do not support previous arrangements for issuing parking tickets for visitors, and therefore visitors permits will be 'scratch-cards' issued to residents as successfully used in Oxford for many years. Pay and Display Parking charges for the public are only payable between 9am and 6pm Monday to Saturday- residents permit holders are exempt from payment.
The charges in both towns are 50p for one hour; 80p for 2 hours; Excess period 2 hours; Excess charge £40 (discounted for early payment at £20). Excess charge payments may be sent or hand delivered to the address specified on the excess charge notice or paid by debit or credit card online or by telephone. 2.) Residents Permits The existing procedures for residents in Abingdon and Henley to apply for residents parking permits remain unchanged. The orders specify that the maximum number of Residents Parking Permits per eligible property is 2. The following permit charges apply: The annual charges for residents permits per property is £80 for Henley and £120 for Abingdon for the first and any second permit. 3.) Visitors Permits. Residents aged 17 or over at eligible properties in specified parts of Abingdon and Henley are entitled to a maximum of 50 days' worth of visitors permits per year provided in 2 blocks of 25 each. In exceptional circumstances, additional permits may be available.Visitor's permits for eligible residents aged 70 or over will be free of charge. For other eligible residents the first block of 25 visitors' permits will be free and the second block will be 80p per permit so the cost of the second block will be £20. Visitors Permits may be used in pay and display parking places and permit parkingplaces.InAbingdon these parking places and permits are zoned and can only be used in the zone as designated on the permit (i.e.Withington Court, and the rest ofAbingdon town). The Oxfordshire County Council (Abingdon) (Designation and Regulation of Street Parking Spaces) Order 1994 (as amended) is revoked and replaced with the new order.
