NEW restrictions on street parking near Oxenhope Railway Station are mostly being respected, according to a councillor.

Commenting at an Oxenhope Parish Council meeting, Worth Valley councillor Rebecca Poulsen reported back on the painting of double yellow lines at this location.

“When I’ve been passing here, so far I haven’t seen anyone parking where they shouldn’t be,” she said. “There will be a new traffic regulation order for the corner of Best Lane and Lowertown, which will soon go out for consultation.

“This spot is quite narrow, with poor visibility, and there have been problems here with parked cars on both sides of the road.”
