Cars parked close either side of the exit entrance to carpark

People Park either side of the drop cerb to the carpark to Hargrave Court. With cars parked on the road opposite most of the time exit from or entering the car park is near on impossible. Jubilee Street is a narrow road and there is no room. There needs to be double yellow lines either side of the exit so no one can block the exit by parking too close either side or across the road. It's really really bad. This issue is getting worst as people from other streets come and park here

Thank you for contacting the Street Doctor service. Please be advised that in terms of how the Council can assist with potential parking 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 Councils website using the following link https://www.westnorthants.gov.uk/ parking-roads-and-transport/ request-new-parking-restrictions 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 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. The process can take up to 12 – 18 months to complete, with assessments from Parking Restriction Request forms received starting in Spring/Summer ready to advertise proposals in Autumn/Winter each year. May I take this opportunity to advise that formal parking restrictions would not be considered where it is seen to just protect access and egress from private drive-ways. For this type of issue, residents have an option of applying for a white advisory line which acts as a deterrent from motorists causing an obstruction information available on the Council’s website at https://www.westnorthants.gov.uk/ parking-roads-and-transport/ obstruction-driveways-apply-white-access-line However this lining is not enforceable and does require neighbourhood co-operation to be successful. In the short term, for your information where there are no restrictions in place 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. We trust this information is of use to you, thank you.
