Persistent problem (ongoing for 2+ years) caused by inconsiderate parking by the participants and families engaged in the weekend football activity on St John’s sports field that creates a hindrance to my ability to access and egress my driveway.
Today I was almost unable to exit my drive for fear of hitting the rear most parked vehicle.
Additionally we prefer to reverse park on our driveway - mainly for safety reasons and visibility of the road when it comes to pulling off our drive given the proximity of the childrens park and play area. However, this is made impossible when cars are parked in this manner along the entire length of road in front of mine and my neighbours houses (71 & 73), as we are unable to achieve the turning arc in the road with which to then reverse on to our drive.
Furthermore this volume of parking presents a significant safety hazard to children who access the park and play area by foot and on bike as these parked cars hinder visibility and often these cars are having to reverse all the way up, or down the road.
Upon taking photos today I was subjected to verbal abuse by the driver of one of the parked vehicles for being ‘ridiculous’ in my concerns and frustrations at this persistent nuisance. When I suggested she should park on the field her response was that it was ‘too muddy’.
This has now gone too far when it has reached a point of me being subjected to abuse outside my own home.
This has been passed to the Parking Services Team.
Subject to available resources, a civil enforcement officer (traffic warden) will go and assess, and if a vehicle is parked in contravention of a parking restriction, a penalty charge notice may be issued.
