Verge being destroyed

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2417786.

Hi, for years the verge outside my house has been destroyed by people parking their cars badly on it. They park here to use the children’s play equipment on the park opposite. There is a perfectly good car park less than 100m away but because the signage is poor hardly anyone uses it. This has been going on for YEARS. It makes the outside of my house look very unsightly. We need double yellows here or for you to put in a proper kerb. This must be sorted once and for all. Thanks.

  • The village council have now said it is your responsibility to maintain the verge...please help us fix this issue I have had to live with for years since you put in the b****dy play equipment at the opposite end of the park to the car park! Where was the sense in that!?
