Regarding paths being blocked;
people often think this is trivial but access for elderly people and those with pushchairs etc. is a nightmare when streets are blocked
And, frankly, it creates ab air of business just taking the p^$s out of the local people - I want to put a sign on the pavement, so I'm going to put a sign on the pavement.
Would you let someone put one outside your front door? Try contacting Daryl Wilkinson at Southwark Council
re pavement obstruction, he was in post in May of this year.
If your area is seeing increased litter and anti-social behaviour, then you can consider contacting Living Streets.
That said, there's a Chicken Cottage
near where I live (Borough High Street
) and though the frontage is ugly as hell, I can't say I've any problems with them at all - only a small amount of litter at the local bustop and the local kids keep it busy buying chips. They seem to get a lot of drive past trade - if I'm at a bus stop, cars pull over and go in to get food. They don't serve alcohol though.
