Parking bays do not allow safe passage of emergency vehicles

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 15:17, Mon 15 May 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4556964.

The council is aware of this issue as I understand. The parking bays do not allow enough space in the road for safe passage of emergency vehicles, or for any vehicle larger than a small to medium-sized car to pass safely without high risk of damage to parked cars. The tree stump (cut, I think, last year by the council) stops the middle of 3 residents' parking bay spaces on this side from being used pragmatically and means that cars parked here often cause obstruction. If this was removed, the middle car could park slightly on the very wide pavement to avoid this problem, as the cars either side usually do. A suggestion for a solution that I and other residents feel this is safe, reasonable, and practical is to repaint the bays with a small portion over the pavement (and remove the tree stump completelet). This preserves safe and easy passage of buggies and wheelchairs along the wide pavement AND preserves parking spaces in this high demand area.
