EXPERIMENTAL restrictions to stop parking in local streets around Radley Station could be extended after commuters' cars were damaged.

Great Western Railway provided funding for more measures in 2016 due to growing demand for commuters using the extended car park.

Yellow lines were introduced in roads near the station but a recent consultation has revealed a number of concerns remain and alternative solutions will now be explored.

Thames Valley Police and Oxford Bus Company told Oxfordshire County Council the measures had worked well and that they should remain in place but Radley Parish Council expressed concerns.

It said that parking should be removed from Foxborough Road where some commuters' cars had been damaged.

It also pointed out that the station car park often had spaces available and that the Bowyer Arms had implemented its own parking scheme because the restrictions weren't working.

Oxfordshire County Council resolved to keep the current restrictions but explore further measures, which could see yellow lines on other streets such as St James Road.

Officers will work with Radley Parish Council to draw up further measures, which will then go back out to consultation.
