66, Burcott Lane, Bierton, Aylesbury. HP22 5AS. Grass verge in front of garden.

Reported via desktop in the Bollards or railings category anonymously at 16:25, Monday 15 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5856141.

I am either seeking permission to fit my own bollards on the grass verge in front of 66, Burcott Lane, Bierton, or for the Council to fit bollards. As can be seen from the attached photographs, the grass verge in front of said property is turning into a mud bat. The damage is not caused by home owners parking on it, as there is plenty of parking on the layby across the road, or on the road itself. It is delivery drivers unnecessarily pulling up on the grass verge instead of just stopping on the road, where there is plenty of space for them to do so.

I am happy to supply and fit these bollards or to fit bollards that you may wish to supply, to your specification, or for bollards to be fitted in any way, before the verge gets any worse.

I look forward to your reply.


Steve Carter. 66, Burcott Lane.

  • This has been passed to a Highways Officer to investigate the enquiry/issue.

    An inspection will be carried out within the next 20 working days, if a replacement bollard/railing is required, this may take up to 12-14 weeks as we do not hold these items in stock. Please note, if the issue reported is a danger to the public, we will make the area safe until a permanent fix can be scheduled in.

  • Update

    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.

    State changed to: Closed
