Double Yellow Lines & Enforcement in West Street

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 11:54, Fri 11 October 2013

Sent to Adur District Council 1 minute later

The DOUBLE YELLOW LINES in WEST STREET are fading and need repainting and there needs to be a 'no waiting' sign to accompany these. There is also little evidence of any enforcement of parking on these double yellow lines - cars are continually parking or waiting in this narrow street - usually people getting takeaways who leave their engines on. A real nuisance for the houses they wait outside as their doors open straight into their lounges - noisy and causes vibrations to stonework on listed properties in the street - conservation issue. There is a car park nearby for anyone who needs to park their car. I have already written to Adur council about this twice via their Worthing parking website - and get no reply.

  • Disappointing to not have received any reply or action on this issue. I will pursue via MP if I don't hear anything by end of this month.

  • I received a phone call from the council who confirmed that the yellow lines will be repainted in the next six months, but that they would not be putting up 'no waiting' signs. They also offered to prompt traffic warden services to keep an eye on the area - which has been evident - as we have seen several cars parked on the yellow lines getting tickets and traffic wardens visible in the street. Cars continue to park/wait intermittently. One driver waiting on the yellow lines for a takeaway with their engine on and very loud music prompted my husband to have words. The situation is not completely rectified, but grateful to council for their help. We will continue to pursue if the problem gets worse and are monitoring the situation.
