Double yellows required

Sent to Bristol City Council 5 minutes later

The single side pavement on the side road leading to the elderly community at Elmdale Gardens is repeatedly blocked by cars parking on the pavement. Cars often only leave a small gap between the car and wall, the excuse given is so that people parked in the disabled space at lloyds bank on the opposite side of the road can get out. Obviously they should not park on the pavement but they do, repeatedly, especially at school time. This causes severe access issues for the elderly community at Elmdale Gardens as this single pavement is their only route to Fishponds Road and the shops, they often cannot get past the cars on the pavement with walkers/trolley bags/some pushed in wheelchairs and have to go into the road or not bother to leave their homes. This could be resolved by extending the double yellow lines that are on the corner along the side road to the private car park access gate. I witness people’s selfish parking and the impact this has on the Elmdale Gardens community on a daily basis. It is also right by the school and a walking route for many school children along with their parents with pushchairs who are then forced into the road. Please advise how I can go about requesting for the double yellow lines to be painted. I could pay myself if funding is an issue. Thank you
