    SOUTH PARKS ROAD CAR PARK


    Alteration to parking
    arrangements


    Revised notice

    The following alterations to parking arrangements in the
    South Parks Road Car Park apply from Monday, 8 March.

    The existing entrance from South Parks Road will be
    closed to car park users. This entrance will be used from
    8 March for contractor's site access only.

    The existing exit to Mansfield Road will be modified
    for use as both entrance and exit to the car park.

    Approximately sixty car parking spaces will be taken
    out of use to form a contractor's compound adjacent to
    the rear of 1 South Parks Road.

    To compensate for the loss of these spaces, the validity of
    the
    fluorescent green permits for the 2–4 South Parks Road car
    park will
    be extended to cover all available designated
    spaces in the
    Science Area.

    In view of the inevitable increase in pressure on the
    remaining
    spaces, all staff who normally use their car for
    getting to work
    are asked to review their travel arrangements and are urged to
    use alternative means if at all possible.

    The University Surveyor's Office regrets any
    inconvenience caused by these alterations, which are due to the
    commencement of works on the new Rothermere American Institute.

    SIR JOHN HICKS FUND

    The Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund invites applications
    from members of the University for grants towards the costs of
    research in economic history. Applications will be considered
    from undergraduates, graduate students, and members of academic
    staff, and may related to research into the economic history of
    any period or country.

    Applicants should (a) provide sufficient information
    about the general nature of their research to establish that it
    falls within the field of economic history; and (b)
    specify the precise nature and cost of the expenditure for which
    a grant is requested. They should also give the name of one
    referee who might be consulted by the committee.

    It is intended by the committee that grants should normally be
    made for sums of up to £250, though this may on occasion be
    exceeded. Retrospective grants will be made only in exceptional
    circumstances.

    The committee will consider applications twice in each year. The
    closing date for the first round is Monday of the third week of
    Hilary Term, and for the second round Monday of the third week
    of Trinity Term. Applications should be sent to Mrs E.A.
    Macallister, Secretary of the Committee for the Sir John Hicks
    Fund, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.
