  • Just seen that the advidor wrote stating parking due to lack of spaces. there are spaces outside a number of houses however there are mire than two cars fir some addresses. there are plenty of spaces in Hawthrone Road and opposite. itis laziness and consideration. i have explained to a number of neighbours but they tell me they have dogs or shopping so need to be close !

  • This is an ongoing concerning issur of safety first and environmental issue close by. there is enough parking in the side roads for these cars. they have no concern for my safety pulling into traffic driving over 30mph and the grass verges which is unsightly comig into our village. the aggression shown by neighbours towards me is getting out of hand. i have emailed the local policing team and wait a response. i have a letter from wellingborough norse regarding bins being left in the same spot as the vehicles stating that they have carried out a site visit and the bins in the location cause a visibility issue...surely a car parked there is even worse !!!. environmental groups are monitoring these kinds of things to see how council react. there isnt many green areas evem the small ones should be preserved. even though it is a safery issue the area the cars are parking on should be seen as green areas and not parking. it was there well before the cars were. i have videos when cars are parked either side on the verges impeding my view literally making me pull out blind onto the A6!. myself and neighbour are happy to plant maintain this area to protect the trees and visibility. it would be great to complete a site visit along woth the police to see what i am and my neighbour have to deal with. i know this is such a minor issue in the scheme of things my my and my families safety is important and should be to the council too. thank you

  • 1st pic is a panoramic shot to show how sight is lost from both ways when people park wither side. then there is a tree wither side which then also blocks the view.

  • This week there has been cars parked in these areas daily which has resulted in one day where a car had to swerve to avoid hitting my car as I cannot see as I pull out onto the A6 because the parked cars on the verges are blinding my view of the road

  • I was walking my dogs outside 88 irthlingborough road and slipped and fell on the floor due to the excessive mud and water that has been thrown onto the path because of the parking on grass verges. luckily all that was hurt was my pride however there are a lot of elderly in the town walking dogs along the path and if they fall I dread to think the possible injuries they would receive.

  • Continuing problem vehicle dangerously parked on grass verge causing severe damage to the grass area and blocking views of people leaving drive. this is criminal damage and should be treated as such. the money can be recouped back from the person causing the damage. if you do nothing about this then yiu arw setting a precedent that people can park anywhere
