Council update on “Draymans Lane opposite Higginson Park” FixMyStreet New updates on Draymans Lane opposite Higginson Park Update on your enquiry

With more and more households owning multiple vehicles, parking has become an issue in some areas, drivers who park on a footpath can in some cases, force users of wheelchairs and pushchairs to use the road which is both dangerous and thoughtless.

If there are road lines/marking on the adjacent road, or there is a bylaw for the area (should be on a signpost at the site) we can, subject to available resources, send a civil enforcement officer (traffic warden) to go and assess, and if a vehicle is parked in contravention of a parking restriction, a penalty charge notice may be issued. However, if there are no road markings on the adjacent road we as a council are unable to take any action, in these cases we would suggest you contact Thames Valley Police as they are responsible for the enforcement of traffic laws, which includes speeding, dangerous driving and dangerous parking please contact them on their non-emergency number 101.
