Dangerous Parking Due to no Markings

Reported via desktop in the Request Parking Restrictions category anonymously at 12:28, Monday 1 February 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 350495.

On the corner where I've placed the marker, people are parking closer to the corner where the school is located. This now means that in order to see clearly to pass the parked cars, you have to pull out into the on-coming lane without being able to see if it is clear. Trucks like this one cause a particular problem due to their size. With planning consent in progress for many houses at the bottom of Orchard Close, this is an accident waiting to happen. PLEASE, can some yellow lines be put in here to allow people to pass safely?
