Parking spaces not defined

Reported in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category by J Roberts at 22:08, Sunday 23 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2259829.

The parking area along the front of properties numbered 6, 8, 10 & 12, has no defined parking bays. As a result parking often becomes a free for all with numerous vehicles using more space than required. This in turn results in vehicles parking on the pavement adjacent to the boundary of number 7. Defined parking bays would improve the use of this area and reduce the instances of parking on the pavement.

  • I am sorry to hear of your concerns about parking here. Unfortunately this is increasingly common in many streets as car ownership has increased considerably in recent years. We do not mark out bays unless there is a restriction such as Pay & Display parking. Because there is such a variety of vehicles on the road, it is not possible to ensure bays are always an appropriate size for any vehicles that might wish to park there. However drivers should always park considerately, which includes no obstructing the path. We do not have any powers of enforcement with regards to obstructive parking. I am sorry that I cannot give a more positive answer.
