  • Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately Northamptonshire Highways do not have the powers to take any direct action against vehicles parking on the public highway. However, if someone parks inappropriately at a road junction or on a footway 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, then any concerns should be passed on to Northamptonshire Police. Obstructing the highways is a matter for the police and they may decide on taking the appropriate enforcement action. Contact your local Safer Communities Team by calling the non-emergency number 101 or by following the link on the Northamptonshire Police website.
