Yellow lines - Water Eaton Lane

The double yellow lines went through and were approved at committee level (Oxfordshire CC), and hence passed for implementation. The single yellow lines, however were not approved - see agenda item 10 in the following papers:-

The officer recommendations took account of the objections received from residents as summarised in the report, and also observations made by officers of the parking here at various times of the day, which did not indicate a significant issue.

The yellow lines work at Water Eaton Lane is therefore now considered complete.
