I live in a cul-de-sac (in London) where parking is at a premium. The reason is, the houses were put up in the mid 1950's when no one at the time imagined sixty years later that someone will be wanting to park an XC90.
The neighbours are a mix of council tenants (originals in two cases), leaseholders, freeholders and renters from private landlords (more common, it's the schools).
Some of the newest arrivals complain bitterly about this lack of parking. The fact they could park 100 yards away doesn't alter this view. It's the council fault. And if they can't park where they should, they'll park where the f..k they like and can.
This forecourt is a private area owned by the council. It's parking for garage holders (like me) only. It should be completely empty of vehicles.
The fact that most garage owners couldn't access their own garages on account of this lot made no difference, until now.
The council turned up unannounced one morning and put bollards and lock down posts right across the entrances.
Complaints! just a few.
When people complain about being denied the right to trespass and inconvenience others just to avoid a short walk, you wonder what you're dealing with. What other strokes are they pulling with their pushy 'me first' attitude?
