My address is 16A Spareacre Lane, Eynsham OX29 4NH, my main bedroom is on the right side of my house.

There is a pedestrian path immediately next to the right outside of my house and there is a driveway next to the pedestrian path. There is no gap between my house and the pedestrian path.

There are always vehicles parking on the pavement immediately next to the right side of my house day and night , which have caused a few very serous problems.

1/ noise pollution---it severely disturbs my family's everyday life because noise pollution from the parking vehicles. For instance, when the van starts up in the earlier morning 5:50-6:10 each day, it makes me jump and wakes me up.

2/ a property in peril---when the vehicles start or pull, the vibrations run through the ground to the walls of my house.

3/ air pollution--- the smell of diesel engine fumes drifts up and comes into the room vents or open window.

4/ an obstacle to the public interests--- also, the parking vehicles often block/hinder access to the entrance to the community or the exit from the community. Adding on, pets from neighbourhood always like fouling in the shadow of the vehicles that park on the pavements, I keep cleaning this as well.

In general, all the above problems have been caused by the current design/plan of the driveways & pavements next to my house, I strongly insist that you find ways to resolve this issue and let me/my household have a normal life (I usually work from home)

  • For any uneducated people talking like the above, you shup up! For any educated people with mind such as staff work in council Highways, there is an easy way to solve this problem---paint yellow lines---this is what the police suggest to do as well.

  • Still for the above issue---Concerns for vehicles parking right outside a residential property. please find the photos attached. We will see from the photos that my house locates around/between the corner of the Spareacre Lane and the Woodlands Road, and there is no gap between my house and the pedestrian path----that's the direct impact of noise pollution & vibrations from the parking vehicles stopping and starting up. And thus any roads/highways professionals will feel the need to take measures to resolve these problems . one of the options, also the easiest way is to paint double yellow lines.
