Vandalised CPZ15 signs (again!)

Reported in the Road sign damage category anonymously at 11:50, Tuesday 19 May 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2121134.

Predictably, a few days after installation, the newly replaced CPZ15 signs have been vandalised ... again! The first time was reported on 21st Feb 2020 (Ref. 2012859). Same MO: sprayed with black paint. This time it's four signs vandalised - three pictured and one obscured behind a parked camper van. Hoping that Parking Wardens will still have powers to enforce the CPZ15 provisions.

  • The saga continues: a resident of Upper Hedgemead Road was moved by the vandalism reported above (Ref. 2121134) to clean three of the pictured signs using solvent to remove the spray paint. Within 24 hours, one of the cleaned signs (the one attached to Hedgemead Park railings) had been removed. So we now have two cleaned signs visible (both mounted on posts), plus one other obscured by a parked camper van. How long before the signs are defaced again, I wonder?
