  • We cannot put legally enforceable signs up restricting parking without the backing of a legal Traffic Regulation Order. Obstruction is an issue that needs to be reported directly to the Police. There is no national prohibition against either on-street or pavement parking except in the latter case in London and more widely in relation to heavy commercial vehicles. However, it is an offence to drive onto the pavement, whether with intention to park or not. Because this is a criminal offence, as opposed to the vast majority of civil parking offences, it is enforceable by the police, not the local authority. There have long been concerns about the extent to which this is enforced.
