I live on Oxford Street and often get home around 5pm to find no spaces are available to park near to my house, but by 6pm the street is magically clear.
It is the same at weekends because it is so close to town it has become a free car park.
If residents’ parking was to come in, yes it would clear that problem, but with yellow lines down one side of the street it would be like Christmas for the parking wardens as there is not enough room for all cars to only park on one side.
So either way it is a no-win situation.
