PEOPLE are split over whether a Low Traffic Neighbourhood scheme is 'good value' for money.

Earlier this week, an Oxford Mail investigation revealed how much Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) schemes and proposals in the city have cost since they were first proposed.

Data from a Freedom of Information request revealed that the Cowley LTN trial scheme and the East Oxford LTN consultation phase cost the council at least £108,404 up to the date of November 20 2021.

The Cowley Area Experimental LTN had cost £97,404 up to November 2021, however, this excluded the cost of staff, as well as consultancy and consultation activities, such as handing out leaflets.

Up to November 2021, the council had spent £9,150 on the consultancy of the proposed East Oxford scheme – excluding initial development costs, which were part of a wider package of works and were not distinguishable from other projects.

Oxford Mail readers, however, are split over whether the scheme was 'good value for money' or not.

More than 5050 people responded to a poll on the Oxford Mail's website - 60 per cent of respondents said they were 'unsure' whether the scheme was good value for money.

20 per cent of responded 'no', the LTNs were not 'good value for money' and the other 20 per cent of respondents said 'yes' it was worth the money.
