Oxted Parking - Delivery I

Delivery vehicle in Oxted

Not only is there a shortage of parking in Oxted, there is a shortage of loading zones too. Here we see a delivery to the shop Cook obstructing traffic for over half an hour as the delivery van parks on a yellow line, within a few metres of an intersection, and facing on-coming traffic.

This photo was taken at about 11am on the day before local parking enforcement was due to come into effect. I would like to go back sometime and ask the friendly parking attendants where a delivery van is supposed to park if there is no loading zone, and where a shopper is supposed to park when the parking areas are all full?  Perhaps the answer to the second part of the question lies in enforcing parking time limits - those things that stipulate you can only park for one hour, and may not return within one hour between 8:30 am and 6:30 pm from Monday through Saturday.
