A new residents-only parking zone was approved yesterday.

Oxfordshire County Council approved the controlled parking zone in Cutteslowe, which residents hope will prevent commuters parking in their streets.

Residents can buy £50 annual permits allowing them to park in the area.

In some roads, only residents with permits can park from Monday to Friday between 10am and 3pm, while in others the restrictions apply every day between 10am and 5pm. In other streets the restrictions apply from Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm.
