Very restricted access and poor parking habits

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 16:21, Fri 11 February 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Poor parking with wheels outside parking bays make access, already limited by parking on two sides of The Fosseway, extremely difficult. In addition, vans, trucks and other large vehicles parked in The Fosseway to conduct renovations or deliveries to buildings exacerbate the access problem and these vehicles utilise Fosseway Court as their turning bay putting private property an elderly pedestrians at risk.

The matter of two-side parking has been raised repeatedly with the Council and Respark by the management and residents of Fosseway Court, a retirement development at the end of the road. Emergency vehicles often cannot get down the street and vulnerable, frail residents are constantly put at risk. Please make the matter a priority before something terrible happens with possible legal and social consequences. The matter has been a problem for over 30 years and consistently passed on to official/department without action. Only removal of parking on the non-residential side of the road or parking on that side will alleviate the situation.
