Location: At the junction of Newbold Terrace E and Fernhill Drive. Cars block the access for wheel chairs and prams to use the up and down ramp on Newbold Terrace to gain access to the path. so a keep clear road marking on the road would be very appreciated. There is another up and down ramp about 50 yards down the road that would need the same.
Warwickshire County Council does not have the authority to deal with vehicles parked inappropriately at this location. For assistance with a vehicle which is causing an obstruction you would need to contact the Police who have powers to take appropriate action. The Police have the authority as the Highway Code states“You MUST NOT leave your vehicle or trailer in a dangerous position or where it causes any unnecessary obstruction of the road. [Laws CSDPA sect 21 & RTRA sects 5 & 8]” In such a case they may issue a Fixed Penalty Notice or arrange removal/relocation of the vehicle.
