Highways blocking, causing unsafe parking and driving conditions

Reported anonymously at 17:11, Wednesday 17 July 2019

Unit 4 Hawksworth, Southmead Ind Est, Didcot, OX11, is a premises which has 3 business operating from it. I suspect without appropriate planning permission. This unit has a maximum of 4 allocated parking spaces. The business running from this site are: - A car repair garage (D&C Auto Services ltd) - 6-8 permanent cars parked - A taxi business (C&M Management Services) - 4 - 6 cars - Kickboxing Classes (SMAF OXFORD LTD) - 15 - 20 cars parked for 90 minutes at least 3 x per day. I've been made aware that a recent planning application for the business opposite this unit was almost objected to based on the potential traffic (thankfully this business doesn't cause any traffic issues) As you can imagine the above is causing vehicles to park on corners, throughout the industrial estate, on the spaces of local businesses (which causes there customers to park outside of designated spaces) and causing reckless driving and unsafe conditions. Many of the classes are for children and therefore making the environment even less safe for them. This has been ongoing since the business opened its SMAF around February and they have attempted to deal with it by putting up signs claiming them have parking spaces on the side of the road. The traffic issues are at the front, side and rear of their premises.
