Car parked on Midford Road creating an obstruction on the highway and a danger to residents using adjacent driveways. It was parked there all day yesterday 8am-5:15pm and remains there at 7:45am this morning. Parking on the road is as a result of the failure of planning to enforce the construction management plan condition from a 2013 planning application that is still under construction.
Thank you for your report, it will be reviewed by the appropriate team.

Thank you for your report. Our traffic wardens can issue parking tickets for parking on double yellow lines or other parking restrictions, but we can’t respond to issues of parking when there are no restrictions in place. If parking is causing an obstruction or there is a danger please phone the police on 101. The Police have the powers to enforce parking, as well as move a vehicle if it is causing an obstruction

Vehicle was removed and just oily marks left to indicate its presence yesterday. It was reported to the police too, but the presence of the car on the road is a consequence of BATHNES planning's failure to enforce their conditions, hence reporting it to you too. These records will be used when the dangerous parking results in harm to road users or local residents.
