Cars driving too fast in King John’s Walk where cars continually park and people walking in the road.

Suggest putting road humps to slow down cars and stop cars parking down King John’s Walk as it narrows the road and emergency vehicles can’t get through. People are parking to go for a walk down the lane to the stables and people hang around on the corner and chat. Social distancing is being flouted everyday. Plus toddlers and babies in pushchairs have no where to walk but in the road risking their lives. Cars coming face to face means one has to reverse all the way back down the lane risking running someone down or damaging parked cars. Road humps will help and deter.

  • Photos taken last year and earlier this year of cars parked on the grass destroying the kerb and narrowing the road for emergency vehicles. People are forced to walk in the road where cars going to the stables drive at speed. Also to the right of the third picture is a concrete block that people sit on gather around especially teenagers Hang around shouting swearing drinking. I am not brave to go out there to get them to break up and go elsewhere. The concrete block should be sloped or spiked to prevent them hanging around and the corner fenced off to stop them sitting on the current fence. There are only elderly people living in this road and this building which is on the end of the road so there’s a lot of disturbance. The lane going towards the stables should not be lit to prevent cars driving down late at night dealing drugs.

  • It’s quiet from cars parked but still cars drive too fast and there are 3-4 cars from the field opposite that park on the corner which forces cars towards our fence where people walk and children have been on scooters coming downhill and cyclists at speed so the cars coming from round the corner cannot see them. There will be an accident one day.

  • Nothing has been done at all. No it is definitely not fixed. The council were going to put yellow lines along King John’s Walk to stop cars parking when visiting the palace. Cars still park to go to the high street and that forces people to walk in the road where cars visiting the stables drive to fast down the hill. Little children on bikes and scooters will face a head on collision or toddlers strolling with their parents will end up under the wheels of a car as the driver cannot see them. Bumps in the road would slow them down and double yellow lines will deter them.
