Vehicles constantly parking on yellow lines, and needs to address traffic levels in West Street

Since the easing of the lockdown there is a constant stream of vehicles parking on the yellow lines in West Street - often parking on the pavement, with engines running, people sitting in their cars eating or using their phones loudly in their vans/cars then driving off - not delivering to the street. For residents in the street sometimes there are deliveries, fair enough. However its yellow lines for a reason and not a layby or car park. The disruption by noise and pollution to those in houses nearby is not acceptable - its a side road in a conservation area, not a car park. Please please could there be repainted yellow lines and ‘no idling’ and ‘engines off’ signs, plus traffic wardens back in action. Living in the street 7 years, have only noticed this problem getting worse in the last three years. Ideally West Street could be residents only and blocked off in the same way as Victoria Road - its a narrow street with pavement only on one side - making it difficult to safely social distance or cycle. Days when traffic uses the street as a run to get onto the high street are not acceptable in terms of noise, pollution or vibrations to the ancient houses in the street.

  • No action so far on these issues. Street is getting busier with increasing numbers of delivery vans parking on double yellow lines since lockdown. Need to reduce traffic and idling in West Street.
