Proposed yellow lines In Iffley
At the AGM in May 2018, concerns were again raised about damage to parked cars, blocked pavements, disabled and abandoned vehicles being left on Iffley’s streets, sometimes for months, and traffic jams caused by delivery and collection vehicles.
Cllr. Ed Turner said that more of East Oxford has adopted residents’ only parking, so commuters increasingly use unregulated streets such as Iffley Turn. Dense parking there and in parts of Church Way are making corners dangerous. Some parking controls in Iffley are now become inevitable. So early in July 2018, Cllr. Turner, OCC Traffic staff and FOIV representatives met to examine the problems.
After an informal local consultation last autumn, Oxford City Council’s detailed proposals for small-size double yellow lines near hazardous junctions were passed to Oxfordshire County Council, who set up a Consultation from 22 March to 19 April 2019. Oxfordshire County Council's final proposals were approved at the Cabinet Member Decision meeting on 31st May 2019 at County Hall, Oxford.
The decision followed a public consultation. Fourteen replies were received. Nine were in support, there were no objections and three expressions of concern, including a call for a disabled parking bay on Meadow Lane for users of Lucas and Remy Place.
