Lay-by opposite residential properties being used as a truck stop, dumping ground, public convenience and a late night meeting place.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This lay-by has doubled in size in recent years, it is now used daily as a truck stop, including over night. It is also being used daily as a public convienience for motorists, a late night meeting place and flytipping. Many of the lorries have external fridge units which run throughout the night. Most motorists who stop here leave engines running for a number of hours. I’m proposing the closure of the lay-by as there are two further safe places for vehicles to stop that are not adjacent to residential properties.
