    A CITY CENTRE STRATEGY FOR
    OXFORD


    Submission to Oxford City
    Council

    The University has submitted the following statement to
    the City Council in response to an invitation for its
    views on a strategy for Oxford's city centre. The
    submission has been approved by the Hebdomodal Council,
    and has been drawn up in consultation with
    representatives of a number of colleges; it has, however,
    been made clear to the City Council that the submission
    cannot represent the views of individual colleges, as
    these are autonomous, self-governing institutions.

    For the purposes of the submission, the words `city
    centre' have been assumed to refer to the area bounded by
    St Giles' Church to the north, the railway station to the
    west, Folly Bridge to the south, and Magdalen Bridge to
    the east.

    Return to List of Contents of this
    section


    A CITY CENTRE STRATEGY FOR OXFORD

    Contents:




    Introduction

    1. The University of Oxford, with its colleges, is
    likely to remain the city's largest organisation, and
    much the biggest single occupier of land in the city
    centre. A large number of its members also live in the
    heart of the city. For these reasons, proposals for the
    future development of the city centre are of the greatest
    interest to the University, and indeed are integral to
    its plans for its future development; correspondingly,
    the participation of the University in the formulation of
    policies for the city centre is vital to the success of
    the strategy which the City Council eventually adopts.
    The University is therefore pleased to take this
    opportunity to express its broad views on Oxford's future
    role and to make a number of specific points on a
    strategy for Oxford grouped under the broad headings of
    land use, transport, and other issues.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice



    The future role of Oxford

    2. The University's vision for the future of Oxford
    is for it to continue to be a relatively small but lively
    and cosmopolitan city, with a range of diverse but
    complementary activities taking place in the city centre.
    The University would wish the city to foster activities
    which enhance its role as:

    (a) a university city (reflecting the needs
    of both this University and Oxford Brookes University,
    although of course the latter is situated outside the
    city centre);

    (b) a residential area for a substantial
    number of those who work or study in the city;

    (c) a retail centre primarily for those who
    live and work in the city, and for those who visit as
    tourists or for conferences;

    (d) a centre for non-retail services;

    (e) a cultural and educational centre for
    the region, focusing on its museums and centres for the
    visual and performing arts.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice



    Land use

    Housing in the city centre

    3. The University welcomes the City Council's view
    that residential accommodation in the city centre, which
    contributes to the vitality of the city centre and limits
    the number of people who have to travel long distances to
    work in the city, should not be decreased.

    4. With regard to student accommodation, it should be
    noted that the University now houses 83 per cent of its
    students, thus considerably exceeding the planning
    assumption agreed with the City Council in 1973. Plans
    for the city centre must allow flexibility for the
    University to pursue its aim of providing more student
    accommodation, as student numbers continue to grow at
    about 1 per cent a year, and higher standards are
    requiring the rebuilding or upgrading of older
    accommodation to a lower density. Although some of the
    additional accommodation can be provided outside the city
    centre, colleges need most of their student accommodation
    close at hand, so that students can come into college for
    teaching and to participate fully in collegiate life. The
    requirement for more student accommodation in the city
    centre will therefore continue, and the need to adapt
    premises above and behind retail outlets will remain.

    5. On the other hand the University would wish the
    City Council's policy on residential property to have
    some flexibility so as to allow the conversion of
    residential units which are no longer required, for
    example redundant caretakers' flats, for other uses,
    without the need for specific reprovision in every
    particular case.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice


    Retailing and Leisure Facilities

    6. The University supports the City Council's aim of
    reducing traffic in the city centre in order to make
    Oxford a better place to visit and in which to live and
    work. It is therefore important that the planned
    reductions in commuter traffic and the resultant
    pollution are not negated by increases in shopping and
    leisure traffic caused by attracting people from outside
    the normal Oxford catchment area. However, the University
    recognises that a strong retail and leisure sector
    contributes significantly to the vitality of the city
    centre and provides an important service to the people of
    Oxford, reducing the need for them to travel frequently
    to out-of-town shopping centres or other towns and
    cities. The University therefore believes that Oxford's
    strategy for retailing and leisure should focus primarily
    on meeting the needs of the residents of the Oxford area
    and of visitors who come as tourists and to attend
    conferences. Proposals to develop Oxford as a
    regional shopping and leisure centre, if
    desirable at all, should be put forward only if a
    regional public transport infrastructure, sufficiently
    attractive in terms of cost and convenience to shoppers,
    restaurant-goers, and others, is in place to support it.
    In general, the University's view is that it is right to
    continue to promote Oxford as a regional centre for
    cultural facilities, such as its museums, galleries, and
    theatres, as well as the activities of the University's
    Department for Continuing Education in promoting
    life-long learning, as these are already in place as a
    distinctive contribution which Oxford can make to the
    surrounding area; there does not, however, seem to be any
    significant value to the city in seeking to attract those
    from outside Oxford to large numbers of restaurants, wine
    bars, etc., which in general provide low-quality, poorly
    paid employment.

    7. With regard to the licensing of premises for
    leisure use, the University wishes to emphasise the need
    to avoid noise and other pollution by users of such
    establishments in sensitive areas near colleges,
    libraries, and academic buildings.

    8. Following from these points, the University has
    some reservations about the City Council's aim of making
    Oxford into a `twenty-four-hour city', because of the
    likelihood of increased noise and disturbance in the late
    evenings. It is also concerned about the personal safety
    of those visiting the city centre late at night, and
    believes that any moves to encourage people to use
    facilities there at such times must be supported by a
    much more substantial police presence. In addition, the
    facilities available must be aimed at attracting as broad
    a range as possible of clientele, in order to make the
    environment less intimidating.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice


    Non-retail use

    9. The strategy for Oxford should make provision for
    the non-retail sector such as offices, hotels, and the
    conference trade. It is important that these businesses
    are not disadvantaged by any steps taken to enhance the
    retail area. It is also vital that adequate provision be
    made for academic activities, and the University welcomes
    the support being given by the City Council towards the
    plan to acquire and develop the site of the Radcliffe
    Infirmary for academic use. However, the forecast
    increase in demand for such space is such that this site
    could only provide for about ten years of growth, and
    because of this and the uncertainty over the availability
    of the Radcliffe Infirmary site, the University also
    needs to acquire and develop other sites for academic
    use. Some of these sites will need to be close to
    existing university buildings in order to foster
    interaction with existing teaching and research without
    increasing traffic and will therefore be close to the
    city centre.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice



    Transport

    Pedestrianisation

    10. The University supports the principle of
    introducing pedestrianisation, where appropriate, in the
    city centre, as it makes the environment for pedestrians
    more attractive and safer. However, a major proviso to
    this is that proposals for pedestrianisation must take
    into account the fact that colleges and academic
    departments operate all year and at all hours, with the
    consequent need for their visitors and deliveries to have
    unhindered vehicular access at all times.

    11. It is also important that measures to pedestrianise
    areas make adequate provision for cyclists to pass
    through those areas, by means which ensure maximum safety
    for both pedestrians and cyclists. In addition, schemes
    for pedestrianisation should only be implemented in
    conjunction with an effective policy on public transport
    and the use of space.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice


    Park and Ride

    12. The University supports the provision of park and
    ride facilities, but believes that their popularity and
    therefore usefulness will be limited as long as there are
    concerns about the security of parked cars and solitary
    drivers in the evenings. Finding resources to address
    these concerns must therefore be a priority amongst
    measures to reduce car use in the city centre. The City
    Council should also explore the possibility of extending
    the park and ride service, perhaps by encouraging bus
    companies to provide satellite link services from
    surrounding villages to park and ride sites, and thereby
    reducing the need for commuters from outlying areas to
    use private transport. At present there appears to be
    little co-ordination of policy in this area.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice


    Alternative forms of public transport

    13. The University is supportive of the local
    authorities' attempts to reduce road use by promoting
    alternative forms of public transport to the city centre,
    such as the guided bus scheme and proposals to open a
    railway station at Kidlington. The University appreciates
    that these matters are the responsibility of the County
    Council, and that financial constraints have hindered
    their implementation to date, but urges that political
    support for such projects should form a significant part
    of the City Council's strategy for Oxford city centre.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice



    Other issues

    Tourism

    14. The issue of tourism is of great importance to both
    the city and the University, as large numbers of tourists
    are attracted to the city by the presence of the
    University and its colleges. Whilst recognising the
    benefits of this to the retail and hotel trades, the
    University urges the City Council to be guided in its
    policies by the principles of sustainable tourism,
    amongst which is the need to achieve harmony between the
    needs of visitors and the `host community'. To this end,
    the City Council must take steps to minimise the
    disruptive effect of tourism on the day-to-day operation
    of the University and its colleges as institutions of
    learning. In particular, action needs to be taken to
    reduce noise and pollution from sight-seeing buses and to
    tackle the problem of coach parking in the city centre.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice


    Conferences

    15. The City of Oxford is a member of the British
    Association of Conference Destinations. It has strengths
    as a destination for business conferences, but also some
    weaknesses. The strategy should ensure that policies are
    in place to improve its attractiveness, ranging from
    recognition of the need for a multi-purpose hall to
    encouragement of the arts and cultural events. The fact
    that these take place a walking distance from residences
    in colleges, and their range and quality, are in
    combination the `unique selling point' for Oxford and
    must be supported.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice


    Security

    16. To increase the attractiveness of the city centre for
    residents, conference visitors, and tourists, improved
    provision for security is essential. In particular, we
    would support the City Council's use of CCTV and measures
    to control antisocial behaviour. As already stated in
    para. 8, it is also important to ensure that the city
    centre enjoys a significant police presence.

    Return to list of contents
    of this
    notice


    Conservation of the Historic Environment

    17. Much of the central area of Oxford is covered by
    conservation area designation, and care should be taken
    to maintain and enhance the character of these areas,
    including those that are devoted mainly to commercial
    activities. For this reason, the University encourages
    the City Council to give its support to the sensitive
    adaptation of historic buildings for modern use as being
    the best way to preserve them for future generations.

    18. The University and colleges also intend to continue
    with the policy of constructing buildings that will
    enhance the architectural heritage of Oxford, though the
    needs of modern scientific research and teaching require
    buildings of an industrial nature with flexibility for
    frequent changes of equipment and internal layout.

    19. The University also welcomes moves to reduce the
    pollution damaging historic stonework by reducing traffic
    levels and exhaust emissions. In this respect it is
    important once again to emphasise the need to reduce
    overall volumes of traffic and not simply to divert it
    from retail streets to other roads or to replace commuter
    parking with short-term parking for shoppers.

    of this
    notice


    Liaison between the University and other local
    organisations

    20. The University welcomes the opportunities for
    co-operation offered by its membership of bodies such as
    the City Centre Management Working Party, where
    representatives of the City Council, businesses, and the
    voluntary sector can exchange views and work together to
    improve the city centre. This has already occurred on
    matters such as security and the appearance of public
    areas. If the proposal of the Oxfordshire Chamber of
    Commerce and Industry, to replace the CCMWP with a
    higher-level Management Board, were to be implemented,
    the University would wish to be offered membership of the
    board so that such communication and co-operation could
    continue.

    OXFORD ACADEMIC TRAVEL SCHEME

    Groups of alumni and friends of Oxford around the world
    have on a number of occasions informed the External
    Relations Office that they value the opportunity to
    invite visitors from Oxford to speak to them, either
    formally or informally, on topics of general interest.
    The OATS scheme was set up to inform these groups (for
    example, branches of the Oxford Society, the Oxford and
    Cambridge Society, and the Association of Friends of the
    University) of visits to their parts of the world by
    senior members of the University who would be willing to
    give such a talk or lecture, or attend a meeting or
    reception.

    The University is grateful for the willingness of
    academic staff to support the overseas network in this
    way. A number of successful events have resulted from
    this scheme, and groups of Friends of Oxford, the Oxford
    and Cambridge Society, and the Oxford Society, are
    looking forward to welcoming more academic visitors.

    As before, the External Relations Office would appreciate
    receiving as much notice of visits as possible. The
    External Relations Office will forward details directly
    to its overseas contacts, and the visitor will then be
    contacted directly by the local group.

    Any senior member travelling overseas, who is willing to
    take part in this scheme, is asked to complete and return
    a form obtainable from Ms Wendy Fuggles, External
    Relations Office, Oxenford House, Magdalen Street, Oxford
    OX1 3AB. A brief curriculum vitae is also
    helpful, as the local group can use it as part of its
    publicity for the occasion.

    Any questions on the scheme should be directed to Ms
    Fuggles (telephone: (2)78113).

    CD-ROM media. This service is now available all members
    of the University who have an account on Sable or
    Ermine.

    The initial service allows a single archive file, up to a
    maximum size of 650MB, to be placed on a CD-ROM. A
    facility is also provided to save a previously generated
    CD-ROM `image' allowing a directory structure to be saved
    to a CD-ROM. It is possible to perform the initial upload
    of an archive file from any computer in the Oxford domain
    (ox.ac.uk) although the final submission stage of the
    sequence can only be performed whilst the user is logged
    into Sable or Ermine.

    Instructions on the use of the service can be found at
    the following
    URL: http://info.ox.ac.uk/oucs/cdr/index.

    Those wishing to use the service shoud first read and
    understand the disclaimer found at URL:

    ASHMOLEAN LIBRARY


    Arrangements during the
    construction of the Sackler Library, summer
    1998–summer 2000

    The Committee for the Ashmolean Library wishes to advise
    readers that the main library will continue to function
    in situ during construction of
    the Sackler Library. There will inevitably be disruption
    and noise, but the committee has been advised that, for
    much of the time, working conditions should be tolerable.
    Full information will be given to readers once the
    detailed programme of work is agreed, and they will be
    informed of any changes as they occur.

    The building currently housing the Griffith Institute and
    library administration is due to be demolished to allow
    building to commence. Its occupants and part of the
    Griffith Library will be moved to 2 and 4–6 St
    John's Street. Existing opening hours will be maintained
    as far as the building programme permits.

    Further information will be published as soon as it
    becomes available.
