Better Oxford Street Campaign calls for consultation response opposing pedestrianisation

TfL have now launched their consultation on Oxford Street pedestrianisation. The weight of their guidance on the subject appears to lean heavily in favour of closure, if not 24 hours at least for most of the day, opening late evening to allow for deliveries at night time, so that it can be claimed as "partial closure”.

This is to all intents full closure and will have a drastic effect on Marylebone in terms of congestion, pollution and local amenity. It is simply shifting Oxford Street's problems elsewhere.

The Marylebone Association, together with all the West End Amenity societies, whilst supporting traffic mitigation on Oxford Street is against its full or partial closure. We have had 10,000 copies of the flyer below printed for distribution in the West End area via the Marylebone Association, Soho Society, Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association, and the 2 Mayfair Societies. As Marylebone is on the front line with regard to the first stage of the proposed closures we will be looking to distribute about 5000 of these in our area.

Every individual response to the consultation matters so we would urge all to engage, and please ensure that the pdf below is distributed as widely as possible to everyone you know in the area.

We are looking for volunteers to help with distribution of the flyers within Marylebone so please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. directly if you are able to help with this, indicating how many flyers you require.

Hello,

I live on Marylebone High Street. I believe Oxford Road as it is does not work and the level of traffic is too high on Marylebone HS as well. Rather than campaigning against improvements to Oxford Road, why don't we campaign to reduce the level of traffic on Marylebone HS? It would be great if Marylebone HS was pedestrianised for at least some part of the day / week. There are many ways to reduce traffic in the wider Marylebone area, and I think we need to lobby for these rather than to keep the status quo as it is.

Best regards
