Cars/Vans repeatedly block the road!!

Reported via desktop in the Car parking category anonymously at 19:36, Wed 22 March 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4346615.

I have reported this on numerous occasions to the police. People keep parking illegally in Freshland Way. The either totally block the path, or they park so they block the road. One 3 occasions now, it has been blocked so an ambulance/fire engine would not be able to access the road. The van in the picture has already been spoken to by the police and it is being ignored. My neighbour at No.7 gets people knocking on her door asking her to move her car - she is parking legally. We urgently need double yellows on the road on the right hand side as you come into Freshland way and right around all the corners. This cannot continue.

  • This is an ongoing frustrating issue where people park illegally and partially block the road making it impossible for large vehicles, namely emergency services accessing our road.

  • This week an ambulance could not enter our ruse because of the persistent selfish illegal parking.

  • This is a continuous problem where people park selfishly and illegally where it gets to a point ambulances cannot enter our road.
