Cars or vans parking right up to drop curb

Reported via mobile in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 19:47, Thursday 13 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2724724.

Vehicles park up against the drop kerb and when there is a car opposite its impossible to leave or enter the flats carpark.

It needs double yellow lines putting in, in front of Hargrave Court to stop vehicles parking in front of the building blocking exit or entering as the street is very very slim

  • Thank you for using our Street Doctor service to report concerns for parking on Jubilee Street, Irthlingborough. In terms of how the 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 Councils website using the following link 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. 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.
