Destruction and change of use of grass verge

Reported in the Pavement damage category anonymously at 13:00, Wed 1 April 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 2077889.

For nearly two years this car has parked on the grass verge and consequently destroying it. There is room for him to park in the road - or he has the option for a driveway as his neighbour has done. Why no action has been taken against him for the mindless vandalism caused to the grass & kerb is unbelievable. Now, obviously emboldened by the lack of any action by the Council or Highways Dept. the grass has now been covered in concrete chippings, creating a parking space on the verge. At very least this car owner/resident should restore the verge to its former glory.

  • Since this vehicle has parked in this place, several other cars/vehicles have started copying it, parking on the grass areas of Coronation Avenue nearby, e.g at the junction with Warwick road.

  • Coronation Avenue junction with Warwick Road shows one example of the spread of this practice.

  • Car still parking on grass verge (Now self gravelled) near the bottom of Coronation Avenue. Cars on Warwick Rd/Coronation Ave on grass verges and and cars parked all around junction of Tenby Road and Warwick Road o/S Flats. Vision seriously impaired- I thought there was a law about parking near junctions?

  • Car still parking on ‘destroyed’ grass verge - another year on with no action being taken against perpetrator! He/she should have been served with some sort of notice/fine? Grass verge now being destroyed on corner of Coronation ave & Warwick road by recent occupants of house once lived in by Helliar family. Also as pictures before of junction of Tenby & Warwick Road - cars parked all around the junction. Just what is the point of any by-laws or road traffic laws when nothing is done to enforce them?
