Unfortunately Northamptonshire County Council no longer consider installing ‘No Parking’ type signs or such measures at wooden posts, bollards or barriers to prevent parking on grass verges to be a priority. Legally it is not an offence to park a motor vehicle, other than an HGV, on a grass verge unless it causes an obstruction of the highway or there are parking restrictions in place or a byelaw is in force prohibiting it. However, we do appreciate that there are areas of Northampton, where parking is at a premium and people endeavour to maximise the available on-street and off-road parking spaces. Parking on a verge or footway would be a criminal offence if there is clear evidence of willful obstruction or causing a danger or obstruction to persons or property and where it is deemed not possible for drivers to safely manoeuvre, pedestrians to pass unhindered along the footway or that access to public or private property is impeded. This can then involve local police intervention through their Safer Communities Team by calling the non-emergency number 101 or by following the link on the Northamptonshire Police website. The Police may be able to identify the owner by the registration number of the vehicle(s).
