There will be a crack-down on illegal and irresponsible on-street parking after Cherwell District Council agreed to give police £60,000 to tackle the problem.
The money will allow Thames Valley Police to dedicate the equivalent of one full-time Community Support Officer (PCSO) to parking enforcement across the whole district for the next two years.
Cherwell’s executive approved the proposals during yesterday’s meeting (Monday, 4 September).
“The district council is charged with ensuring the quality of life for people in Cherwell and this will have an immediate impact.
“And this won’t be one PCSO rushing between parking hotspots, this fund will be a boost in resources for neighbourhood police sergeants all over the district to tackle problems in their areas as they see fit.
“The alternative is a drawn-out, costly process of the district taking over enforcement from the police, which may only result in the improvement that this plan aims to achieve.”
Thames Valley Police have requested the agreement lasts for a minimum of two years and would see PCSO resources boosted by 37 hour per week in Cherwell.
The hours will be divided according to population size and demand and will therefore see a greater focus on the urban areas of Banbury and Bicester.
Parish and town councils have been asked to highlight parking hotspots, however the police can only take enforcement action where on-street signs and lines comply with current legislation or where dangerous parking occurs.
Where signs and lines do not permit enforcement action they will be referred to Oxfordshire County Council as the highway authority.
