residents parking

Recommended Posts

Today a leaflet came through the door from Lib Dems. Says agreement regarding residents' parking permits could not be reached with residents of various roads. One of which was Belmont Court. It may not be common knowledge, but Belmont Court is privately owned by owners of properties in Belmont Court and is maintained by them, not the Council. Surely the Council have no rights in deciding parking there?

Do the owners have private parking assigned to their properties or has the road been adopted by the council?

Who is responsible for the road outside? Belmont Court is irrelevant. Or is it private parking spaces you're on about?

Each property in Belmont Court has an assigned parking space/spaces.  From the junction from Belmont Avenue, turning left into Belmont Court, it is privately owned and maintained, the council has no authority and has not 'adopted' it. Thus, they can't enforce the 'no waiting' there. Regularly see cars parked on the left that belong to people who used to park opposite. Since building of sheltered housing opposite the junction, and loss of the carpark and garages, parking on Belmont Avenue by people working in town has increased significantly. Nor have the double yellow lines in front of the development been repainted, meaning people ignore the highway code about parking within metres of a junction. The irresponsible people who park on Belmont Court access are restricting access.. think fire engines, rubbish lorries. Most of all, it is the danger of turning right onto Belmont Avenue.. see my other posts about this. Parents on schoolrun are always in a hurry and seem oblivious of others, whether they are driving to or from the school. If only the yellow lines were repainted.

From what you have updated then the Council are not going to be enforcing anything in Belmont Court anytime soon. This obviously won't assuage your concern about dodgy parking at or near a private street where you live.
