Constant problem with cars blocking pavements outside numbers 1 and 18 and block of appartments 66-69 Midwinter avenue. This is done mostly by people from same 3 particular houses and their visitors. The car in picture was sat there empty for quite a while then the driver returned and sat blocking path for a further 25 minutes. She does not live here but is an illustration of what we have to put up with. As you can see she like all the drivers that park there is not only blocking path but is also blocking the ramp off the path that anyone with mobility problem needs to get down kerb. It is also an offence to park directly on a junction? I understand council does not see parking like this in residential areas as an issue as it is viewed as a self inflicted anti social act but 1) all the OTHER residents in this street have to suffer from it, 2) there are many children living here none of them drive so why do they have to walk in road? 3) there is a residental home here, Home Farm Trust, where many have mobility problems and use the local area for exercise and walking, they NEED this slope and path, why should they not be able to use this route? Cars are sometimes parked on both paths at same time making it impossible for a large delivery lorry or, thankfully not yet, a fire engine to turn into this road. Cars are often left for many hours/overnight on path. There is ALWAYS plenty of room to park on the road and there is always spaces away from junction
