NightlondonI have read your comment about HAWKSHEAD LANE and the fact "it is an on-going issue" is wearing thin. I believe a plan to create a car park for the Vet College was declined by local residents as it would have taken up some of the park area. There were advantages and dis-advantages to be taken into account and I am sure these were discussed at the time.From a police veiwpoint, we can issue tickets for obstruction if the vehicles do not allow enough room for a pram/pushchair or wheelchair to pass or if the vehicle is parked too close to a junction. Tickets have been issued to the students for these very reasons.The Highways Agency are aware of this problem and my understanding is theywill not paint lines in the road. As there are no parking restriction signs errected along the lane either, then there is little we can do. I sympathise with your viewpoint and wish an agreeable solution could be reached and soon!
I can symathise with Nobby's comments. However the car park surfacing will not be tarmac. If he checks out the surfacing of the existing RBVC car parks he will find they have a porous surface which allows rain and snow to soak through into the sub-soil.
Providing an acceptable foot/ cycle path to Brookmans Park is going to help, but the majority of the students come from the Potters Bar/Little Heath area, where there is NOT ANY foot/ cycle path and can be very dangerous, especially in the winter. Can the pavement be extended all the way to Hawkshead Lane from Hawkshead Road(it currently ends near Boltons Farm).I have first hand experience as I have ridden a bicycle and walked from Little Heath to Brookmans Park along that stretch of road, and have also had near misses with pedestrians/cycles when driving along the same stretch of road.
The RVC, being animal orientated, is surrounded by farm fields and there is woodland within half a mile (it's called he green belt). Plenty of forage for birds.
