Oxted Parking - New shop site

Oxted Sainsburys Local

After my little rant the other day I decided to investigate the parking problem in Oxted, as I mentioned yesterday.  First up, above, is the to-be site of the new Sainsbury’s Local in Oxted. It was sweet of our local counciller to welcome them back with these words:

My wife and I have been living in the area for years so we can remember the first Sainsbury’s.

I imagine this one will be welcomed as it is a small store and I would have thought that would be very convenient for older people living on Beatrice Road. So it will be good for them, and good for the retail trade in Oxted.

I doubt a shop that size can survive just off the custom of Beatrice Road, so clients from further afield will need somewhere to park.  On the (weekday) morning that I did this investigation the public parking areas in Alice and Johnsdale Roads were full, as were all the marked bays up and down Station Road East (the high street).  My photo even shows a car parked illegally in the bus stop.
