Inconsiderate and dangerous parking

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There has long been an issue with inconsiderate and possibly dangerous parking in St Leonards Square, outside Village Fabrics and Look In Hairdressers. Prior to recent resurfacing work, cars were frequently parked on double-yellow lines. Following resurfacing work, the double-yellow lines have not been, or have yet to be, repainted. Worst of all, this morning vehicles (including a large SUV) were double parked in this location. This made it impossible to have a clear and safe sightline from the end of Goldsmith's Lane, of vehicles entering the square from Reading Road.
