Excessive car parking in residential area

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 22:00, Tue 23 June 2009

Sent to Dover District Council 4 minutes later

Meetings held regularly (at least weekly), with excessive numbers of cars, overspilling onto the road, causing inconvenience and obstruction(ie parking opposite & close junctions). Frequently the property's frontage looks like a car sales forecourt, and is out of character with the residential area.

  • Dear Mr. Heaps,

    With reference to your letter dated 6 June 2009 that I assume should be 6 July 2009. You need to be aware of the following facts:

    If PCSO Stevens visited the area more often she could see we still have a problem even though the whole frontage is paved hence the wording in the complaint and the supplied photos sent from Fix My Street that I assume you have looked at? The car park is not big enough and they then just park any where they like with no consideration. The effective solution is for the home to have there meetings elsewhere not yellow lines. This is a residential area not the start of a business park.
    As past experience as show PCSO Stevens is not an effective traffic warden, thus inappropriate parking continues. PCSO Stevens would prefer to defend the Children’s home. Just recently, she has threatened me by telling me to stop taking photos of the property in respect of garden maintenance and car parking. As you can imagine I am not happy and considering contacting her superior should I hear any more nonsense on the subject.

    PCSO Stevens has been known to target cars indiscriminately and then has the pathetic excuse stating they did not know who the vehicle belonged to. (see attached) (Other trivial parking problems, always present in the same area on a daily basis are just ignored. Personally not a great problem to me).
    The PCSO has admitted she has not spoken to the local residents on any subject in connection with the impact of the new home! You will in due course hear about the car from the home careering out of the drive, across the junction and into the fence of my opposite neighbour. (Telephone received on Saturday from my opposite neighbour). She was lucky! Apparently this was met with a load of verbal abuse from the home into the bargain!

    Can you please forward this to email to the local highways inspector and approximate personal within DDC for me.
