However, Haywood claimed he purposely did not name the business in his posts.
Restaurateur Clinton Pugh, who claims he lost one of his three businesses in Cowley Road because of the LTNs, criticised Haywood's comments.
“We’re not relying on him (Haywood) anyway,” he told The Oxford Mail
“He has done nothing in this time to help us. He hasn’t visited us.
“So he’s saying either we agree with him, or he doesn’t support our business. Shame on you, Mr Haywood. What a thing to say.”

Another user said on social media: “Why post criticising businesses who are already struggling with genuine concerns?
“You're proving everything they say - if they have a different opinion to you they're ignored and belittled and you refuse to engage with them.
“It's your job to represent all of your residents.”
Responding to the situation, Haywood said: “I want to get across that I think it was unwise to alienate a potential customer base, many of the local community support LTNs and for one establishment to come out against them is unwise from a business perspective…
“They clearly see a business opportunity on the Cowley Road, and why would they try to undermine that.
“I wish them well and I hope they change their opinion.”
