Oxted parking - Station Road East

Oxted Station Road East

This photograph shows 3 delivery vehicles and 2 cars parking contrary to parking regulations in Station Road East.  Shortly after I took the photograph a third car pulled into the space behind the white truck to make it 3-3.  When I took the photographs I had been hoping to see (and speak with) the local parking attendants at work. However they were only due to start the following day (28 September 2006).  Perhaps scenes like this are already a thing of the past.

It’s a wacky suggestion - but another way to alleviate the problem might be to provide more loading bays and parking spaces. If they ever get around to dismantling the unused gas cylinder, that might provide space for a few cars, or a multi-story garage.  Another suggestion would be to pedestrianise the high street, plant trees down the centre, and a cycle lane down one side.  I’m not sure what the traffic impact would be on the surrounding (residential) streets though, especially as it would probably mean reducing the total amount of parking available. Some space could be reserved for short-stay parking, taxis and loading bays.
