Problematic Parking

We have received reports about inconsiderate parking of vehicles.

Vehicles parked on pavements are a potentially dangerous street obstruction which can force pedestrians to walk along the road to bypass those vehicles. This is especially problematic for pedestrians who are blind or visually impaired and may not see oncoming traffic; as well as wheelchair users, people with pushchairs and older people.

We will be monitoring areas where obstructive parking is reported and distributing this advisory notice to the owners of those vehicles:
