The dropped kerb/vehicular access thread- all queries in here please

Recommended Posts

we haven;t built a drive, we have had the kerbs dropped and park in front of house now, council came and passed it after they had been dropped

 

Why did you have them dropped if you don`t have a drive?

with the intention of having a drive and stop moron next door parking there, we use the dropped kerbs to park on front of house (no garden) gravel

I always thought it was blocking access that wasn`t allowed, I`m sure someone will put me right though.

I honestly don`t see what the problem is someone parking infront of your house if they arn`t blocking any access.

the council said they weren't doing that any more.

 

You were lied to (unless the rules have changed since last year).

Why is he a moron for parking outside your house?

 

Its alot easier when almost no one has a drive - on our road most don't have a drive and therefore everyone is in the same boat. Neighbours park considerately. Everyone takes the rouge witht he smooth - sometimes you end you parking 200 yards away...so what.

because he has a massive drive at the front of his house with plenty of room for 4 cars so why park outside my house with all that space?! give me a chance to park outside MY OWN HOUSE!!!!

Well said. This obsession with parking off the road is beyond me. People rip out lovely old stone walls and their little piece of garden just to park a car on. Yes, I'd like to have a drive, but I'm not ruining the front of our house just to save me a walk with some shopping....or the baby... Don't get me started on other architectural vandalism like PVC windows on victorian houses !

 

Insurance is cheaper if you have somewhere to park it off the street. And it stops other cars from crashing into yours when the road is icy (speaking from experience)

I agree.

Several years ago the rd collapsed outside our house, so the bit to get past was as wide as a pavement. The few houses past ours could just squeeze through. There was room for a couple of cars further up the rd, the rest of us had to park right up the hill.This is what we all did for years until the rd was fixed.

Point is no-one started throwing one if they didn`t get one of the spaces. Everyone was entitled to park there, so it was just if you got lucky.

Can't be much cheaper - postcode makes a bigger difference. And my answer about being crashed into? So what...its only a car. I'd much rather the general street appearance wasn't ruined with concreting front gardens of small terraces.....larger plots are different, I'll give you that.

yes they can park over dropped kerbs but then you have to ask them to move and if they say no then you can get them removed by a tow truck!!! I know because we have the same problem for years with moaron who lives next door, well he longer parks there now as we have had kerbs dropped!!

 

So you can get a car towed away even if it isn't blocking access to anything thing? For example if there was a dropped kerb that lead to a brick wall, no where for a car to go; surely a car cannot be towed away under these circumstances?
