Virgin Media Digging Up Pavement

Sent to Blackpool Borough Council 2 minutes later

My wife and I woke up early Monday morning to be greeted by the sight of a band of workmen setting up a large amount of barriers down Palatine Road. It transpires that they are working for Virgin Media. There was great confusion and dismay among our fellow residents, none of whom had been notified of this rather large intrusion into the running of our normal legal pursuits. The workmen themselves were pleasant enough and did what they could to minimise the inconvenience but the fact remains we were not told in advance. As a great many of our neighbours have said if we had known about it we could have dealt with the situation. The on street parking is a crucial part of people's lives as most of the residents have a motor vehicle. The fact a number of people came home from work to find they could not park did not go down well!!! Surely it would have been a simple matter to leaflet each household before the work started. Or is common courtesy truly and, sadly, dead? Comments please?
