Reasons for Decision
To ensure that unauthorised parking can be effectively controlled on housing estate land so that;
· Vehicles are prevented from obstructing access for emergency services or service vehicles, and those that do are dealt with swiftly and effectively;
· Those residents, visitors and tradespersons who are legitimately permitted to park on estate land are not deprived of places to park by unauthorised vehicles.
