New parking zone comes into force

First published in News

FROM today new parking restrictions will come into force in East Oxford.

Oxfordshire County Council has created the new Divinity Road controlled parking zone (CPZ), which will apply to streets including Bartlemas Road, Cowley Road, Parsons Place, Hill Top Road, Warneford Road and Divinity Road itself.

Only those who live within the zone – and their visitors – may park their cars in these streets, except for in a few designated short-stay spaces. This will apply at all times and residents will have to apply to the county council for a permit.

Each permit costs £50 per year and residents will be eligible for up to 50 visitor permits – the first 25 of these will be free and the next 25 will cost £16.

Business permits are available to businesses and hotel visitors’ permits will be made available for paying guests at hotels and guest houses within the zone.

A person who is temporarily a resident in the zone for study does not qualify for a permit.

The county council will also be introducing a small number of one hour and two-hour parking places within the zone which will apply every day between 8am and 6.30pm.

Exemptions to these new parking regulations apply to disabled badge holders, official funeral vehicles, loading and unloading, the emergency services and vehicles being used in connection with road works.

In Southfield Road there are several parking bays just long enough to take 2 cars, separated by 6 feet stretches of double yellow lines. So if anyone happens to park in the middle of a parking bay – and many do – a second car can not park legally.

Was this done after consultation with residents because someone – either the Council or the residents – has dropped a bit of a clanger.

It does not say council vehicles, and parking attendants vehicles are excluded, so cameras out, as the above two think that they are exempt from all rules.

However, as the residents will no longer have the objectionable students and NHS professionals parking on *their* street, it should result in improved property values.

Celebrations all round!

I assumed that there would have been but if they were anything like the consultations in my area, the Council will have canvassed residents’ opinions at some length, but then managed to come up with a plan that completely ignored them.
