In October 2014 the Parish Council made Watlington Parish Council (Off-street parking places) Order 2014 which will give the council the authority to enforce parking regulations in Hill Road Car Park, including among things, the ability to issue penalty charges on vehicles that overstay the two hour limit in the designated short term parking spaces.   The short stay parking spaces have now been repainted in red to avoid users' confusion on where long term parking is allowed.
