After an undated letter warning of parking fines from Courtman & Co, many of my neighbours have been fined for parking near their houses. For 305, 306 & 307 Romsey Close, which are all privately owned properties, the purchase of land means that there is no longer any road access, yet the deeds and land register for these properties state that they should be allowed vehicle access and anyone who buys the land should follow council regulations, eg provide 28 days of written notice of changes and not 'materially adversely affect the enjoyment of the property' - which this certainly has done.

The council told me that it was none of their business because they had sold off the end of Romsey Close (which has been used as a public road for the past 50 years) to Hampshire Garages Investments to do what they like with, whether that means randomly restricting vehicle access for private residents or charging other residents, who don't live on that part of the road for parking bays now painted on it. After sending residents an undated letter at the end of November, the managers of the land Courtman & Co with Parkdirect, started issuing fines before any road markings indicated where parking was allowed or fined. As result, most of the people living here, including pensioners, unemployed, single mothers etc were fined £60 with threats to increase the fine if not paid promptly. Some of my neighbours are on the part of the road adopted by HHA, and can access their gates and park as usual.
