Someone has cut a diy parking place into the bank at the top (A417) end of Mill Street, on the southern side.
There is no dropped kerb, suggesting that they did not bother with planning permission.
The parking space is badly positioned, being on the bend: they have cut away a mass of soil with no visible signs of revetment or support, so it will probably tumble down into the road every winter, and as they do not have dropped kerbs, the vehicle using it has to bump up and down the kerb, which means they have to swing wide over the full road width.
I cannot imagine this would ever have been granted planning permission: can action please be taken to get it removed before there is an accident there.
Last November OCC said "I have delivered an Access Application letter to this address 2 months ago but it has not been sent to OCC. a Letter will be send telling them they need to get planning permission from VOWHDC and send in an Access Application form to OCC. we will also tell them they need to pay to have the tree inspected for safety.-A P-OCC"
The unsupported tree has been cut down, but the parking space is still being used, with no dropped kerb, causing danger to traffic in both directions.
