- Residents parking advice
I live in a block of appartments,and we are haveing problems with car parking, basicly of 32 appartments we have 16 spaces,but 32 garages,which some are used for storage, by their owners,some residents dont have cars,and quite a few residents dont have the ability to drive in a garage.
So we have cars parking on the pavements around the block, causing problems with delivery drivers,and refuse trucks.
So how can we allocate parking spaces,can we specify no visitor parking,one car per appartment,or force residents to use their garages to park,if the vehicle fits,not to high, or long.Posted 8 years ago
Has the street been adopted by the local authority?
I'm involved in a similar situation and the only solid advice I can give you is do not, under any circumstances, bring in a private parking company to try and sort the problem. They are scum of the highest order and will create more problems than they solve and they will not stop.Posted 8 years ago
Clampers are a nightmare and they'll go after everyone, bullying them into paying even for parking correctly.
Do you have a managing agent for the block or a residents association? I'd speak to them to get the opinion of others.
Our management company brought in a private parking company and it's been a disaster and they will not go away. I own my parking space and the land it's on and even when I was parked in it with my permit on display I was still getting tickets. I gave up displaying the permit altogether and at my last count I've got somewhere in the region of 150 parking tickets which the PPC is asking for £180 for each ticket. 😆 About £27,000 in total.Posted 8 years agodave_rudabarMember
Is there any space to park infront of the garages?Posted 8 years ago
My GF's old place stipulated that garages were for the storage of cars & you risked losing your garage (they were seperately rented) if you just used it for storing other stuff.
You'll have to get a consensus from everyone if you want to do something similar & I doubt you will TBH…glasgowdanMember
Can't ou just get by the way things are? Have you ever had your bins not collected for a week because of it? Missed a vital package delivery because of it?
I think the hope of changing the habits of dozens of people, with or without potentially involving third parties that will only make things miserable, is a lost cause.
