Parking on the footway causing obstruction

Cars and larger vehicles parking on a 3.2m wide footway blocking pedestrian access and requiring them to walk on the road. The carriageway at this point has double yellow lines as it is narrow, there is a giveway point directly opposite and the downhill direction narrows to single lane with reduced sight lines. There is also a fire station and access to a private garage which are blocked on a regular basis. I have communicated with the parish council, eden district council, county council, and the police over the past couple of years but to no avail. Have sent photos, suggested trief kerbs, bollards, planters and other measures, which could still leave the absolute minimum of 1500mm for pedestrian access, but have had no luck yet.
