Parking on corners of Queen Street & Union Street
Reported in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 22:47, Saturday 21 March 2020
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 2070218.
Unlike the junction of King Street and Union Street there are no yellow lines on the junction of Queen Street and Union Street. Cars are parking on both corners and on the paths nearby to the extent that it is tricky and somewhat dangerous to enter/exit the private car park for the flats at 60 Queen Street.
Thank you for reporting a fault. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.

Thank you for your correspondence regarding parking issues along Queen Street, Desborough. In terms of how the County Council can assist with these issues we can consider formal parking restrictions within this area however in order for the team to investigate the possibility of this we would require you to complete a Parking Restriction Request form. Please visit the County Councils website using the following link https://www3.northamptonshire.gov.uk/ councilservices/ northamptonshire-highways/ parking/ Pages/ request-for-new-parking-restrictions.aspx for more information on the process and to submit an application. As you may be aware, parking restrictions have a Traffic Regulation Order behind them in order to make the restrictions legal and enforceable. The County Council is therefore required to follow a formal process, which includes consultation and potentially a period of dealing with any objections, before parking restrictions can be implemented. Please email email@example.com if you require further information or assistance with submitting an application. In the short term, Northamptonshire Police can enforce if there is an obstruction on the highway where it is deemed not possible for a driver to safely manoeuvre, pedestrians to pass unhindered along the footway or that access to a public or private property is impeded. Any concerns can be reported via the local Safer Communities Team by calling the non-emergency telephone number 101.
