Prking Issue

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction (Not Vegetation) category anonymously at 16:50, Friday 21 January 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3257702.

For many weeks, someone has been parking their car across the pavement every weekend. The car is parked like this from Friday to Monday, sometimes longer. I have already seen a woman with a pram who had to go down the road to avoid this car. Elderly people, dog walkers and people with children have to use the road to continue their walk. Everyone is forced to get off the pavement to the road.

  • I asked you to intervene after trying to get help from the Police.Twice. The first time I've heard that they will contact the owner of the vehicle, which they clearly didn't do. On the second I heard that I had to contact the Council about it, because it was not a matter for the Police. So who should I talk to and who is right in this case?
