On the subject of Oxford Science Park, why do they not open up their carparks for profit on match days? They employ someone to stop people going in. Why not employ him to take money!
I know this has been a bone of contention for a long.
I believe that has been discussed and is still in consideration, it does make absolute sense. I can't remember where/when I read it I'm afraid, think it was about four or five months ago.

I used to work there and was allowed to park there because our company rented offices on the park.

The reason they don't allow OUFC fans to park there is because before renting space companies are not happy about football fans parking in front of their offices.

One way forward may be to open it up to season ticket holders. I believe Oxvox are exploring this.

Ah, I see. I think having fans park in the multi-storey would get round that visibility problem but that would need stewards (= costs). Also the multi-storey wouldn't make much of a dent in the parking - maybe 200 or so spaces off the top of my head?

im sure when this was discussed last season, the season before that, etc.. someone found there was a clause in the rental contracts that prevented the spaces being rented out/charged for or something along those lines - as im sure some company there would have sorted this by now if they could?

The trouble isn't with the amount of parking spaces but with the access to the stadium, at the moment the only way to get to the stadium is to go by car or pay for the bus. Adding more parking spaces would only increase the number of people who drive to games. Adding a railway station at the science park would more or less eliminate any traffic coming from bicester, kidlington and oxford city centre. Leaving the parking spaces for people who live in less accessible areas.
