PC Comments Original application April 2020 (PC meeting 29.4.2020 - No objections Amended application 9 June 2020 - Objection Additional car parking on campus, encourages car trips. Already over 75% of work trips to site are single use car. Draft Harwell Campus Framework Masterplan has shared pedestrian/cycle routes on both 8th St and Thompson Avenue bounding this car park but the development means there will be insufficient space for this provision. OCC cycle design guidance has a clear minimum width for a shared pedestrian/cycle facility of 2.5m and this scheme in its current form would prevent that. The location of the main campus bus route along 8th street means that unsegregated provision on carriageway would not be appropriate along this route. Landscape softening of the scheme is inadequate and both these concerns could be alleviated with a small reduction in the number of parking spaces at the edge.
