INCONSIDERATE drivers are blocking access to roads and littering in Winyates West, a resident has claimed.
The resident told the Standard numerous cars were parked on the junction of Battens Drive and Lowlands Lane at all times of the day and evening.
He said: “It is very difficult to pull out of Pembridge Close when there are cars parked right up to the corner of the bus is blocking the road as it cannot pull into the bus stop.
“To add further insult, the drivers are quite openly discarding their rubbish in the hedges. It has also been witnessed by others that some drivers use the verge as their urinal.”
He added double yellow lines should be painted along both sides of Lowlands Lane from Battens Drive to Lowlands Lane to stop the traffic blocking access.
A Worcestershire County Council spokeswoman said they were happy to consider requests for double yellow lines from residents.
“There is a process which needs to be followed and the first step will be for the residents to contact their local members, Martin Jenkins or Joe Baker, who will be able to offer advice and support as well as offering guidance on the next steps which will include a public and stakeholder consultation.”
Sue Hanley, executive director for leisure, environment and community services at Redditch Borough Council, added: “We always investigate reports of littering and there are a range of actions we can take depending on the information we receive.
“For example we can monitor specific areas to ensure our cleansing schedules are appropriate or route enforcement patrols through certain areas or take enforcement action.”
Incidents of littering should be reported by calling 01527 534123.
