The police should be informed as these vehicles are bumping up onto the verges with no regard for residents or how they leave these verges. Also they can't be maintained. Water pipes are also at risk of damage as are gas pipes.

  • Nothing changed, at the moment 5 vehicles are on the verge. A gas leak was reported and repaired over the last 2 weeks because parking on the verge had crushed the gas pipe. I don't think it will be the last.

  • Vehicles still parked on the grass verge on top of gas and water pipes. The grass is now turfed up by vehicles. We have to live here most of the vehicle owners don't. Some of us have to cut the grass because KCC can't because of vehicles parked on the verge, please KCC Swale or Police do something to stop this..

  • This verge is now unsightly, vehicles still using it as a car park. A gas main was damaged because of it and has now been repaired. But it remains a problem that KCC , Swale Council and the police are ignoring. Because it isn't in the town or outside their property, or will attract to much paperwork.

  • This problem still has not been sorted, the verges are now used every day for parking on and driving over.
