  • We are aware of the issue and do regularly enforce the area, unfortunately we cannot be there all of the time so there will be occasions when contraventions are missed.

    Our enforcement hours are Monday - Saturday 8am - 6pm, outside of these hours issues of safety will be a matter for the Police and we would suggest you call the non emergency 101 number.

    I have asked the team to carry out some concentrated enforcement during their working hours following your complaint.

  • This issue continues daily. I would have thought something better could be done ie bollards etc? It's only a matter of time before there is an accident as you can't see to pull out onto the road from the car park due to the illegally parked cars/vans on the road.
