Inconsiderate parking and bus cannot get through
Reported via desktop in the Obstructions on pavements and roads category anonymously at 11:48, Wed 22 December 2021
Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3194448.
Inconsiderate parking on both sides of NUXLEY ROAD BELVEDERE and buses cannot get through. This is a daily occurrence in this one way street. Vehicles also get damaged as other vehicles cannot get through either. Police have to attend and make enquiries for the owners of the cars. This road should only have parking on one side of the road. Delivery lorries and then a car parked also means total chaos and unnecessary delays and anti social behaviour as car drivers, bus drivers and people get irate and shout or sound their horns
This case is currently being investigated.
Further updates will follow.
State changed to: Investigating

Update from the council I refer to you communication dated 3rd March on the "Fix my street" system. The waiting restrictions, limited waiting parking places and bus stops through Nuxley Road were developed as part of a scheme a number of years ago, this also included kerb build outs at a number of locations to also assist the pedestrian activity between shops and businesses on each side of the road. The majority of the route is covered by a one way traffic order so the road layout and parking controls provide a single lane route for traffic movement. This arrangement works , and problems only arise if a driver parks in a position that obstructs through traffic - I am aware that the cause is often delivery drivers or blue badge holders using the yellow line dispensation. Whilst there are circumstances where a driver can stop on yellow lines to load or unload, or a blue badge holder can park in contravention of yellow lines, they are not allowed to park if they will obstruct traffic movement. Whether the driver has parked thoughtlessly or selfishly the situation should be clear as they park or as soon as a vehicle arrives. I note your suggestion that the route should have parking on one side only, but this will reduce the number of spaces available for those needing to access shops and businesses. There is clearly a demand to use the existing parking spaces so any reduction would impact negatively on businesses and in my view is not likely to have significant local support. I do understand that drivers are frustrated by this behaviour, but the road layout and parking arrangements benefit the commercial viability and accessibility for this shopping area, and there are not any proposals to make changes.
