Parking in council estates

There are many parking spaces near our properties, but some estates were not designed to cope with today’s number of vehicles. We will do our best to keep improving parking problems but please park thoughtfully and with care.

You must make sure that emergency vehicles and rubbish collection vehicles have clear access at all times.

You must not park a vehicle anywhere on your property except on a “hard-standing” (a driveway or paved area intended for parking). You and your visitors must not park anywhere that would obstruct emergency services, or cause a nuisance or on grass verges or footpaths.

You must not drive over or allow anyone else to drive over any open plan or grassed area to gain access to the Property.

You must not use the Property or the land around the Property for any of the following purposes:

  • Major car repairs to cars or other vehicles;
  • dismantling, breaking or scrapping cars or other vehicles;
  • or carrying out any repairs to cars or other vehicles that do not belong to you or other residents of the Property.

You must not park, or allow to be parked, an illegal, untaxed or unroadworthy vehicle on the land around your home, without our agreement in writing. We will not unreasonably withhold our permission.

You must not park any caravans, boats or trailers, or any similar vehicle, on the land around your home unless you have previously obtained our agreement in writing.
