  • The installation of new formal waiting restrictions requires the implementation of a 'Traffic Regulation Order' which involves a long and expensive legal process including full consultation, unfortunately Oxfordshire County Council could not fund such a scheme at this time so third party funding (which is often best secured by the Parish Council) would be required.

    In the meantime it t 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, local understanding can also assist.
