Commuters parking

Sent to Hampshire County Council 4 minutes later

Every week day there are at least 12 cars parked at the top of Sheldon's Lane , they are parked from 6am to late evening and they belong to commuters who walk through the elizabeth hall to the station , These cars are causing an obstruction ,if you are coming off of the A30 and a car is exiting Sheldons Lane ,you have to stop quickly and hope the car that is following you also stops in time. They are also causing an obstruction for the school bus ,that either has to stop on the brow of the hill or alongside the cars and block traffic . This part of the road needs a 2 hour parking limit to stop these inconsiderate parkers

  • Can I just add to this. It is an extremely annoying and dangerous problem. The cars park illegally - too near the T junction with the A30 (they should not park where the white line is in the middle of Sheldons Lane). They also park right up to the Butts Close junction meaning people coming out of there cannot see. Today I had to stop suddenly coming off the A30 as the car in front also had to stop - you cannot see what is coming up the road until you go round the corner. There was a learner driver on the wrong side of the road - the only way to get out of the road - and she looked terrified. The back end of my car was sticking out onto the A30 but fortunately there was nothing coming up fast behind me. There will be a nasty accident there unless something is done. This problem has been reported several times. When will something be done? A 2 hour parking limit would work. It is progressively getting worse and annoying so many people and I have heard that cars parked there have even been vandalised by disgruntled residents. Can we have a sensible solution soon please.
