Parking issues

The parking on Alma road (9-5 mon-fri, commuter parking) Is getting out of control. We have a blind bend coming on to the estate, which has cars parked on to the road on th bend. Added to this there are often cars parked around the corner on the blind spot. Because parked are on the bends, blocking pedestrian foot ways, there are also pedestrians to watch out for when coming around the bend. This problem is getting progressively worse and will get more so, once the new car park is open and more people realise there is free space for parking on our estate. Commuters are also parking down the stretch of road next to the park, this causes restriction to visibility coming out of the road I live on, which is also heavily used by school parents in cars and on foot. There is going to be a nasty accident down here soon! What is appending re parking restrictions on our estate? Something needs to be done, you're turning this part of Grimsbury in to a car park and maki ng it very dangerous!

  • Merton Street suffers the same fate, especially on a Friday lunchtime when the added mosque traffic kicks in, some of this stems from the Mosque renting there car park to the post office workers, merton street like alma road has become a weekday car park, cars have trouble getting down it and parking over the pavement is rife.. when you ask people not to do this you get " well I need to park somewhere" even private car parks are over taken and the cut thru between the mosque and Chiltern house has become a mudbath/cross country hilling event where the ground has been so churned up, this part of grimsbury is indeed a car park now and will get worse and worse we do not see a pcso, a traffic warden ( even though we have yellow lines) we are forgotten - maybe residents of merton, alma etc should all stop paying council tax until the council or police deal with this????
