Staff in both RPC and Gibson are eligible to apply for a Central Peak Permit for 2017/18  Regrettably it is highly unlikely that everybody who applies will receive a permit although we will of course try to ensure maximum sharing across days so that we get the most out of the staff spaces we've been allocated (13 in total).  All peak permit applications for Central Oxford are reviewed by the Car Parking Committee. Afterwards,  you will receive an email to inform you whether or not your application has been successful.

Process

Charges for permits to park on University land were first introduced in 2002. They are generally reviewed on a triennial basis. Changes were previously made in 2005, 2008 and 2012. Initial recommendations, formed by the Car Parking Working Group (CPWG), were scrutinised by the Buildings and Estates Subcommittee (BESC) of Council's Planning and Resource Allocation Committee (PRAC) in June 2015 and then referred to the Personnel Committee for consideration. Personnel Committee, in turn, referred the recommendations to its Joint Committee with University Support Staff and its Joint Consultative Committee with the UCU before considering the matter itself in Michaelmas Term 2015. In February 2016 PRAC approved the revised car parking charges subject to a re-examination of the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) analysis by the Advocate for Diversity & Pro Vice-Chancellor and the Equality and Diversity Unit. This was duly undertaken in May 2016 before onward referral to Council.

Justification for Policy Change

The University has limited parking provision which is under high pressure to meet operational and staff commuting needs.  The policies control access to parking and prioritise the allocation of permits according to caring responsibilities, mobility and operational needs.

 

A charge of 1% of salary is currently levied both to reduce demand for parking and to incentivise staff to commute by sustainable, non-car modes.  To be effective in managing demand, the charge needs to be equivalent to the cost of using the park & ride, the main alternative to driving for staff who do not qualify for a parking permit and who live beyond walking and cycling distance.  Currently the average annual cost paid by full-time staff for a Central and Old Road Campus peak permit is £445, substantially less than the current cost of £706.50  to use the park & ride.  The policy proposes to increase the charge to 1.75% of salary by 2018 to equalise the average cost of a parking permit with the park & ride.  The policy is not designed as a revenue-raising tool.”
