Water Eaton Lane (Gosford) Proposed Parking Restrictions (SYLs)

Following earlier consultations carried out in March 2017 (details available here) & November 2017 (details available here), which resulted in the recommendation/decision at the time to only proceed with the ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ (double yellow lines) restrictions as advertised and not proceed with the timed waiting restrictions (single yellow lines), Oxfordshire County Council now proposes to re-consult on the proposals to introduce ‘No Waiting Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm’ (single yellow lines) on both sides of Water Eaton Lane. 

The proposals are being reintroduced as a result of the levels of unregulated parking along the lane and will help to prevent parked vehicles obstructing visibility and restricting the safe passage of traffic along the lane, as well as ensuring agricultural & emergency vehicles are able to travel unhindered along its length. Specifically the proposals comprise of:

  • No Waiting Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm’ (single-yellow lines) on both sides of the road for 355 metres southwards from the existing double yellow lines.

* Additionally, the proposals will also correct the wording within the legal documents with respect to the existing ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ (double yellow lines) restrictions, to ensure it matches the restrictions as approved in February 2018 and as currently on the ground (i.e. no change to existing road markings).

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.12.6.229) to the address below by 18 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.
