Bus Shelter on School Lane

The Parish Council has agreed to install a bus shelter with seating that will not impede the sight line for traffic at the end of School Lane, Stadhampton. The triangle is in a poor state of repair and the bench is broken.The plan is to improve the aesthetics with a border using railway sleepers (not bollards) stacked 3 high to create planters 60cm high, with shrubs in the planters and fixed solar lights to give an illuminated boundary. The planters will be strong enough for people to lean on while they wait, with a bus shelter and bench for bus users.

A consultation was undertaken in January 2023 via Facebook and out of 2,700 followers 35 responded, most were bus users and 91% used the School Lane bus stop. These include the school bus at 74% and a range of regular, occasional users of different age groups. Those in favour of a bus shelter 97%. Those in favour of making repairs and installing planters 88% with 12% maybe. Those in favour of the phone box 74% with 14% maybe and 12% were against. See the full results below.

Grant funding is being sought from Cllr Newton and Oxford Bus Company, and CIL contributions will be used for the remaining budget, which has approval. 

A proposal for parking space to be included was opposed as this is a safety hazard for children and young people on land not designated for vehicles.
