Off street car parking lost due to increasingly higher alternative use values

Off street car parking lost due to increasingly higher alternative use values

Westminster City Council are considering letting the top level (50,000 square feet) of Cavendish Square car park for other uses.

The Future of Oxford Street - Your Views Please

The Future of Oxford Street - Your Views Please

Monthly meetings are being held on the future of traffic on Oxford Street involving Transport for London, Council officials and representatives of residents groups in the West End Community Network, including the Marylebone Association.

Please let us know your views to feed into these early discussions. Use the comment facility below this article to send us your views

Oxford Street Traffic Free Day = Marylebone Bus Park !

Oxford Street Traffic Free Day = Marylebone Bus Park !

Part of Oxford Street was closed recently for “car free day” for Oxford Street, which in fact lasted for a whole weekend- with the usual predictable result for Marylebone - who is the Mayor kidding when he says this will improve air quality? The Mayor wants to close Oxford Street totally by 2018 so is this the future for Marylebone's Low Emission Neighbourhood? Lobby the Mayor about this before it is to late.
