O/S 1 Eskdale Road

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5112820.
There is a small gap between the end of the double yellow lines at the junction to Eskdale Road and the start of the drop kerb for the driveway to 1 Eskdale Road. The space is not large enough for a car to park in without either partially obstructing the driveway or parking on the double yellow lines. Vehicles park in this space multiple times a week and are usually people who use the nearby station. This means this vehicles are parked there from early morning until late into the evening. Whilst the vehicles that obstruct the drive don’t completely prevent access, they do make pulling out dangerous, as it’s not possible pull on to the road in one turn. This means vehicles exiting the drive must perform multi point turns in the middle of the road with their visions partially blocked by the parked vehicle. Given the proximity to the main road this can often cause congestion and is a safety issue for drivers and any pedestrians attempting to cross the road. When vehicles parked in this space park far enough forward to not obstruct the drive, they end up parked partially on the double yellow lines, however the vehicles do not seem to receive penalty notices for doing this. If it’s possible I would like to request that the existing double yellow lines be extended to the start of the drop kerb as this simple change would prevent all the above issues from occurring and make this section of the road much safer.
This has been passed to the Parking Services Team.
Subject to available resources, a civil enforcement officer (traffic warden) will go and assess, and if a vehicle is parked in contravention of a parking restriction, a penalty charge notice may be issued.
