Parking on the Estate

Some people are selfish to the extreme!

The sign above has been attached to the garage door of No. 17 by the owners who are the company secretary and her husband.  

What gives them the right to make such a statement tthat there should be no parking & please leave clear in front of their garage - whether it's done politely or otherwise, especially given that at times there can be a distinct lack of available parking spaces.  Why do they want the space in front of their garage leaving clear when the only time they actually use it is when they park their car up when they go on holiday, the rest of the time they choose to park in an unallocated space near their home.  Could it be because their son-in-law stores some of his equipment in their garage and wants him to be able to have access available at all times - if thats the case then this in itself is questionable given that the garages are for residents use only.  The subject of parking has been an ongoing one and which this particular couple have been involved - take for instance an incident which occurred in January 2018 - full details can be viewed here.

It might be an idea if they actually starting using their space in front of their own garage as it was intended to be used - as their personal parking space, instead of hogging an unallocated parking space.

And finally - the owners of No. 17 should take a look at the Lease where it clearly states:

THE FOURTH SCHEDULE Clause 5: 

Not to affix advertisements, nameplates or signs on any part or parts of the Scheme except a nameplate giving the name of the Lessee in the place or places provided by the Lessor.

AGM 2018 Minutes - Regarding the  Parking Incident

This parking incident was raised by the secretary's husband and which has already been documented, the fact that his wife is disabled is no excuse for attempting to claim 2 parking spaces.  There are others who are actually disabled too but because they are walking around without any visible signs of disability, people assume there is nothing wrong with them, they do not shout it from the rafters in order to justify their selfish actions.

*

Residents continue to experience parking related problems due to the number of spaces available for residents who own vehicles, the increasing number of health workers to the estate, and also by some members of the community who feel they have rights over other residents by choosing to park where they want to even when they have their own allocated spaces, as well as lack of action by the committee who are well aware of these long standing problems.
