New Close Lane off the A415 near Ducklington roundabout

Reported anonymously at 11:56, Fri 29 November 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and West Oxfordshire District Council 4 minutes later

The lane is getting congested with people settling in caravans and vans, lorry parking and people regularly staying over night. Concern about the traffic coming from abattoir and sewage treatment works as passing places is narrow and the welfare state of the area.

  • Today we have evidence of people now defecating in our parking area. The pathway down New Close Lane is now smelling of urine. There are a number of feral cats in the area and people living in tents and caravans.

  • The County would currently be unable to introduce parking restrictions without a source of funding but could give this consideration should it be forthcoming. Have you contacted West Oxfordshire District Council Environmental Health regarding the other issues?
