Dangerous parking on a zig zag area

We have a serious problem with parents parking on the zig zag area and all along the Littleworth Road. This blocks the entrance to the mobile home estate and prevents residents leaving their driveways. More serious is the fact that parents and children walking to school are having to walk on the road to get passed parked cars especially when the mini buses are dropping children off at John Watson school. We feel that there should be double yellow lines and no parking restrictions for certain times in the day.

The installation of formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) requires the implementation of a ‘Traffic Regulation Order’, this involves a long and expensive legal process including public consultation, I regret that Oxfordshire County Council do not currently have the available funding for such a scheme.
We would suggest that an initial approach is made to your Parish Council so that due consideration can be given towards its priority within the local area and so that the proposal can be endorsed and promoted locally. Parish Councils are also well placed to secure the necessary financial cost to such a scheme.
