Parking on Grass Verges

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 10:45, Friday 16 August 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

This problem has been reported previously. The response was that Highways cannot stop people parking illegally and the only thing they can suggest to stop the problem is bollards. The Highways Authority have said that they can supply and install the bollards but do not have the funding and suggested contacting Thame Town Council as a possible source of funding if they are happy to help and approve solution. The Town Council have requested from Highways an estimate of the cost to provide bollards. The problem is all along Kings Close and Moats Crescent and I would estimate a requirement for at least 34 bollards to address issue (details can be provided).

  • Thank you - could I ask what types of bollards you would be suggesting? There are already wooden bollards on other parts of the close (see attached) would they be similar to this?

  • As I stated in my last update I was waiting for a price for the bollards you requested to give to you, from our Contractors. To supply and install the 34 bollards you asked would cost £4711.60. Please liaise with Thame TC and get them to contact me if this is something they wish to proceed with and pay for. Regards
