Crossing a public footpath to park vehicles

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 18:43, Tue 29 September 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2317705.

The physio clinic next door is again allowing clients to park on the frontage of the clinic. The owner had applied for planning permission for a drop kerb and was denied as he has adequate parking available at the rear of the premises and there is also public parking further down Crawthorne Rd. The vehicles draw up to face the front of the building and then reverse into the busy lane of traffic, this issue was previously witnessed by Clive Dunnett, the person who was dealing with the original issue earlier in the year. Not only is this dangerous, the vehicles are crossing the public footpath and the vehicles are also damaging the cobbles laid along the kerb edge.

    Vehicles causing an obstruction is not something Peterborough City Council can deal with. This becomes the responsibility of the police as they have enforcement powers to move the vehicles where Peterborough City Council don't. Our parking enforcement team can only assist if vehicles are breaching parking restrictions.

    Please report this incident to the police on their non emergency number 101 or on their website here: report/ Report
