PC Comments No objection to amended application. PC withdraws its objection to original application. Original comments on 9.11.2018 - No objections to the science buildings but objections on associated infrastructure. The plan to remove the bus station should have alternative arrangements presented as part of this application. The PC have concerns regarding bus movements across campus and the effect on cycling and pedestrian amenity. The new carpark is excessive for the site. The campus, as a whole, struggles to meet the aims of the traffic plan in terms of targets for non-car travel to work, a large part of which is due to the abundance of free parking on site. Direct bus services to/from Abingdon are very poor (2 in am, 1 in pm) and it was disappointing to read in the transport assessment that no further investment in the bus services to/from site was felt to be required. This part of the application was felt to go against the aims of LTP4. The carpark proposed would remove undeveloped land from the AONB, and on principle we object to this. Increased car movements from Fermi Avenue along the perimeter road towards the new car park will sever the cycle route along Fermi Avenue that currently has no crossing facility, a Tiger crossing to enable cyclists/pedestrians to progress on the path at peak periods would be welcome. Illumination from any car parking developed should minimise light pollution in the AONB. No comments re: amendments October 2018.
