Regular parking on the corner of a road

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 09:12, Friday 24 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I own the properties at 2A, 2B, 2C Nicholas Avenue, Old Marston, Oxford, OX3 0RN which on the corner of Nicholas Avenue and Rippington Drive. We have access to parking area for the flats in Rippington Drive and also a tarmac strip in front of the flats. The entrance to the car park is constantly blocked by commuters who park their car for the day while they go to work. However the most dangerous aspect which causes concern is that commuters' cars and vans are regularly parked on the corner of Nicholas Avenue and Rippington Drive which causes blind spots and is dangerous. I note the corner at the end of Nicholas Avenue and Mortimer Drive have large wooden posts to prevent parking and I request that Oxfordshire County Council do the same at the corner of Nicholas Avenue and Rippington Drive as this is an accident waiting to happen. I have photographs if you wish to see them

  • Thank you for your report. Parking enquiries need to go directly to Oxfordshire county Parking team, and dangerous parking needs to be reported to the police (or cars blocking driveways).
    I believe this area is to become a controlled parking zone, which should restrict much of the parking to residents only in designated spaces. Hopefully this should prevent many of the commuter's cars parking in the area. For more information on this, please see this link: residents/ roads-and-transport/ parking/ parking-permits/ controlled-parking-zones#new%20plans
