Hi, I have lived in my new house for only one month and so far every weekend and alot of mid wk evenings people park their cars opposite our house in particular because it leads down to the lake. Weekends its people parking almost all day and using the green area for get togethers or going on long walks. The mid wk ones are people parking in the evenings to walk over to the field to play cricket or football. They return to their vehicles past 9pm which always wakes my 2 yr old up as her bedroom is at the front of the house. The ultimate reason I bought this expensive house was for the lovely view which I now only get a limited view of due to cars blocking it, and that it was on a quiet streer ideal for a family. The road is already very narrow and if they park fully on the road, not half and half, it causes other drivers problems, Ive not been able to get out of my driveways on a number of occassions and with a baby and being pregnant its incredibly frustrating. Also delivery trucks and other larger vehicles have had to turn around, again causing commotion and noise. I am sure when we have some wet weather that all the parking on grass side walk will almost certainly churn up the pretty green grassy area opposite our house and also anywhere they park along the street. Please please could you consider putting double yellow lines along our road or maybe some no parking signs up. I understand Hampton has always been bad for parking but this stress is impacting on my life not to mention upsetting us having just bought the house of our dreams and its being over shadowes with regular inconsiderate public parking issues. Thank you.
