On-site Works

Work is ongoing at the Marylebone/ Fitzrovia scheme 

Works on Mortimer Street started this week (4 March). These works will extend from Regent Street to Great Titchfield Street in the east. Works on Wigmore Street will commence 11 March and extend west from Regent Street to the junction with Wimpole Street. All works are expected to be completed in early 2025. Read more about the works here.  

Construction will take place during the hours of 08:00 – 18:00, Monday – Friday, and 08:00 – midday on Saturdays (when necessary). 

Various local traffic lane restrictions and closures / diversions will be required for the duration of the project to facilitate the new traffic signal infrastructure and associated utility diversionary works. 

The Murphy Careys Joint Venture (MCJV) is undertaking these works on behalf of Westminster City Council. Should you require further information on the works taking place or the traffic and parking changes, you can contact the team via email at stakeholderteam@murphycareyjv.co.uk. 

Engagement & Consultation

Engagement and consultation information for the Oxford Street Programme are housed on Westminster City Council’s Consultation Hub Commonplace page. There you can access Westminster City Council’s active, past and upcoming engagements. 

We are committed to putting local people at the heart of decision-making. Through the hub you can comment on consultations and feed into decision-making on topics that interest you.  

Summer 2023 Consultation Report

In Summer 2023, the Programme consulted on five of its schemes – public realm schemes for Oxford Street and Oxford Circus, along with highway schemes Marylebone / Fitzrovia, Oxford Street West and Eastcastle Street. The consultation aimed to gauge support for scheme proposals and solicit ideas and feedback on design proposals from local community members, wider stakeholders and other interested parties.  

Through the six-week consultation period, OSP received 1612 questionnaire responses, 27 direct emails of written feedback, over 180 attendees of in person presentations, over 500 people engaged at three separate markets across the borough, 12,800 postcards delivered to local residences and 20,755 views of the programme website. 

All feedback gathered in response from stakeholders and the community has been and will continue to be a guiding influence behind the programme’s design, execution, and maintenance. As part of the Fairer Westminster strategy, the following document shares how the Programme has considered and, in many cases, integrated public input received through consultation, into the latter design stages for the highway schemes and the Oxford Street Stage 2 design process.

Documents & Reports

Equality Impact Assessment

An Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA) was undertaken as part of the scheme. The EqIA is a process designed to ensure that a policy, project, or scheme does not unlawfully discriminate against any protected characteristic as defined by the Equality Act 2010. The EqIA is considered as a ‘live’ document, meaning that it has been updated at different stages of the scheme lifecycle. Read the Assessment here.  

Business Case

In September 2023, Westminster City Council Cabinet approved a full business case for the Oxford Street and Oxford Circus projects. View the Business Case and the Appendices.  

You Said, We Did

In Summer 2023, we asked all willing to respond – to what extent do you support or oppose the proposed Oxford Street Programme? The questionnaire proceeded to gauge support for its individual schemes, ask questions about specific aspects of each proposal including ones that aimed to gauge which issues might be more important to respondents and gave respondents the opportunity to write in any remaining thoughts. Here, we outline some of the elements that you asked for, and how we’ve updated the Programme in response.
