When I attempted to park my bike in the racks at the entrance to Brasnose Lane, from Turl ST there were a number of bikes parked in a mass and locked together and covered with tarpaulins. They have been there for a few months I believe. The same thing was also going on in Broad St before. Bikes should not be parked permanently like this.
These are the same bikes as used to be in the rack on Broad Street, and i have been aware of them for some time, however they do not meet the Councils criteria to be tagged for removal as 'Abandoned', and i have no authority from Oxford City Council to remove bikes on the grounds of being 'Stored' I have forwarded this to the Council to make them aware of your concerns.
