Cars parked in this location prevent access to Chapel Close for the bin lorry. Concerned it may also prevent access to fire engine if needed. Needs a solution but double yellow lines would not be effective as no means of enforcing them.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

Dear Mr Fisher,
Chapel Close does not have an adoption agreement in place yet and we are still in the process of resolving some legal/ownership issues. However, there is a mutual desire to progress adoption as soon as we are able.
The issue of parking and access at the entrance to Chapel Close was not identified at the point of pre-construction in 2007, so no need for any measures were put forward. However, we do accept that traffic volumes, car ownership and driver attitudes do change over time so this is something which may need to be reviewed.
We will pass the matter to our Traffic Team to assess and if they suggest any potential ‘soft’ mitigation measures, then perhaps we could approach the developer to fund the work.
