Parking & Pavements

Reported via desktop in the Car parking category anonymously at 10:30, Tuesday 6 September 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

There seems to be an increase in camper vans and delivery vans parking around this area day & night. These streets are narrow and many of the front gardens are only a couple of feet deep. This means that the camper vans block the view from people's front rooms and often block the light as well. One at least is an eyesaw, looking like a camouflaged army tank and has not moved for over a week. Also there is a car parked in this street that appears to have been abandoned some months ago with flat tyres. I believe this has previously been reported to the police but no action seems to have been taken. It's bad enough for pedestrians to walk the pavements with vehicles parked on them, as well as overgrown trees and foliage. Elderly couples some times, supporting each other have to walk in the street rather than the pavement because of the obstructions. Also it's difficult for delivery and council vehicles to pass through. How on earth a Fire Vehicle would manage. As I have reported before, vehicles quite often travel the wrong way in this one-way street and appears to be on the increase with more motor cycle deliveries.

  • The camper van problem has not really changed although there is now an official notice on the dumped car. Walking around I see very little change with regard to parking and foliage overhang etc.

  • Some of the problems seem to be resolved - ref camper vans, but the problems with parking on pavements and vehicles travelling the wrong way down the one way street seem to be a long on going thing. As I'm approaching 80, I often find it necessary to walk in the middle of the road to avoid overhanging foliage and parked cars. It's even worse for disabled and the older generation.
