Could you please put forward the proposal for double yellow lines down the even numbered side of Queens Road Thame, OX9 3NQ there is continual blocking of the road due to cars and vans parked which could be very dangerous for an Ambulance or Fire engine as they wouldn’t be able get through , the problem gets worse and worse as more residents have more than one vehicle.

We live at 2 Seven Acres and to the back of our property there are some overhanging trees between us and Queens Road which are adjacent to a public footpath. It looks like that there is a risk of the branch breaking both onto passer byes and nearby boundary fencing.

Thank you for your report and please accept our apologies for the delay in response regarding potential waiting restrictions (Yellow lines) on Queens Road. 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 the Town 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.
It should be noted that if vehicles are parked in such a manner as to cause an obstruction of the highway they are committing an offence under Section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and can therefore be moved by Thames Valley Police although, from experience, matters can often be overcome with local understanding with the builders concerned.
