Parking on the Pavement

Illegally parked vehicles cost the Council thousands of pounds a year in damage to paving and grass verges, and can cause serious problems for blind or visually impaired, disabled or older people.

Waiting restrictions cover the highway from the centre of the highway to back of footpath.

If there are no waiting restrictions on the highway adjacent to the pavement, then the Council have no powers to take action and this should be taken up with the Police since it constitutes obstruction.

Vehicular Access

You must not:

  • Park on your garden without having written consent from the Council and an approved hardstanding, and access or dropped kerb; Approval means permission from the Council, the Highways Agency and planning consent (where required)
  • Dismantle, carry out major repairs ,or leave any such vehicle in a state of disrepair or dilapidation on your property or any shared area without our specific permission. This permission may be withdrawn where it becomes apparent that it is causing a nuisance or annoyance and/or hazard to others. Any vehicle parked on a hard standing area must have a valid tax disc or statutory off-road notice (SORN), if required)
  • Park on grass verges, other landscaped areas or use estate car parks for any purpose other than parking
  • Obstruct access to any other property or service road, or block access for vehicles by the parking of any vehicles by you, your lodgers or visitors
