The biggest problem we have on St Johns and Fair St is finding an empty space....
We have the same problem - in Leathermarket, Lamb Walk
and Morocco Street
many of the spaces are filled with vehicles with no permits of any type. Often they are also un-taxed as well, but although many of them sit in spaces for days on end they never seem to get tickets. I have heard that a local garage uses the spaces for their customers' cars and seem to have some sort of deal with the local Parking Officers so that they don't get tickets. A bit unfair I think. On top of that there is no 'Permit Only' signage in Lamb Walk
when there should be.
sometimes you can find the parking wardens having a nap in the garage office...seriously.
I heard similar from a former flatmate who worked locally.
I’ve seen the garage blokes in their red overalls swapping cars during the day, but I’d assumed that the garage had some special agreement with the council as they are local industry and they’ve been there much longer than most of us.
Graham, can you get the ambulance parked along from the garage on Leathermarket Street
moved? It’s been there for weeks – no tax, half in a resident space and half on a yellow line – It hasn’t been ticketed.
I guess the napping report explains why I get tickets at 8am on a Saturday morning – They must get their quota early then go off and sleep!
