Larkhill Road (Abingdon) Proposed Parking Restrictions

Oxfordshire County Council proposes to introduce parking restrictions along both sides at the southern end of Larkhill Road in Abingdon. The proposals are being put forward as a result of the current unregulated parking along Larkhill Road allowing a significant amount of vehicles to park in continuous lines along both sides of the carriageway, and this has resulted in vehicles wishing to traverse Larkhill Road not being able to see oncoming vehicles, or vulnerable road users (i.e. pedestrians & school pupils) wishing to cross.

The proposals are planned for between the junction with Faringdon Road & ‘Little Garth’ on the western side and No.79 on the eastern side. The restrictions will include 2 sections on each side with an area of unrestricted parking between, these will be staggered to minimise obstruction. Specifically the proposals comprise of introducing  ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ (double yellow lines) parking prohibition as follows:

  • Eastern side: (i) From its junction with Faringdon Road, northwards for 74 metres; (ii) From a point 107 metres north of its junction with Faringdon Road, northwards for 33 metres, and
  • Western side: (i) From its junction with Faringdon Road, northwards for 26 metres; (ii) From a point 54 metres north of its junction with Faringdon Road, northwards for 86 metres.

Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in by completing the online questionnaire, via email or in writing (quoting ref: CM.12.6.100) to the address below by 11 June 2021. The Council will consider objections and representations received in response and they may be disseminated widely for these purposes and made available to the public.

Any unresolved objections will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet meeting later in 2021 (the Forward Plan of decisions meetings can be viewed here). The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.
