Contractor Parking along Torridge Road

Contractors working at Ford's Yard, Torridge Road, Appledore are parking along the road in front of Greysand Crescent making parking difficult. My reading of the planning approval conditions shows this is contrary to approval stipulations that contractors working there should use the car park NOT Torridge road.
Some vehicles are using Broad Lane to get to and from the building site which is also contrary to stipulations stating they must use the main road and arrive via Marine Parade.
Contractors are keeping supplies in their cars parked along Torridge Road and walking to and from the building site to pick them up. Contractor vehicles are used as Tea cabins for tea-breaks, lunch etc and store rooms for supplies while parked on Torridge Road Appledore.
Contractors are extending the pedestrian guidance/protection barriers West along Greysand Crescent to enable them to create parking for their vehicles when they arrive the following morning.
Contractors and deliveries are not pulling up onto site to deliver and do not always have guidance or experienced Banksman to guide them.
Would you please see to this as it is, and has been, creating an awful lot of inconvenience for residents some of who are having to use the car park that contractors are supposed to be using. Contractor vehicles are almost always parked in front of numbers 1, 2 and 3 Greysand Crescent but more of their cars, containing stores, are parked further West.
