Planning permission has been granted for a new £10m multi-storey car park adjacent to Banbury station, in Oxfordshire, despite some serious concerns regarding the amount of traffic this development would bring about, a report reveals.
The plan for the new 707-space site has been approved by Cherwell District Council’s planning committee, at the request of Chiltern Railways, who asked for the permission after recording a 50% growth in the number of passengers using the station between 2003 and 2011.
As expected, in order to enable fast and easy access to and from the station, the application includes plans for a pedestrian bridge with a ticket barrier, linking the car park to the eastern end of the station.
