Does anyone have any idea who I need to call/contact to complain about parking on double yellows...? Planning to give that a go as well.

Hi all,

I was woken up at 11.45pm on Saturday night to the sound of metal scraping and clanging. Unacceptable i'm sure you agree. As the summer looms, this is only going to get worse.

Please can I ask a simple but small favour of all of you.

Please sign this petition and put a stop to the noise.

Thank you in advance.

And Facebook link added to my account. Let's hope there is some action soon for this ongoing dangerous nuisance.

I've signed too. It would be good to keep this at the top of the SE1 page and I hope that James feels that it's worth publicising further as a genuine quality of life issue that matters to locals. A non local spoiling our day for the sake of making money and without giving a toss is just not on. It's tacky, anti social and intrusive.

Signed... Go Anood! I am no Lib Dem but I appreciate all the work, thank you! I'd be a hypocript to criticise tomfoolery, but the activity causes congestion, noise, and nothing positive for anyone but the business owner and the Draft House.
If a diversity of routes were offered, or any variety I'd be more sympathetic, but the same old **** is being churned out to maximise someone's profit.

They are at it again. Particularly bad on Sunday. Extremely noisy, dangerously parked, the p****d "customers" carried on their party on the pavement in Shad Thames.

Just a quick note to say that the company have (again) agreed to move the start and stopping point which should help. The council and police are meeting with the company in the next few weeks so if they are still stopping or starting near your home then please do let me know. I'm also still pushing on their hours of operation as Sunday evening at 10pm really isn't acceptable.

Please do email me at [email protected] with any specific problems they cause so that I can continue to act on the side of local residents.

Best wishes,

Thanks for taking up this problem and fighting our corner. They started parking at the end of Boss Street a couple of weeks back and also in the red route parking bays on Tooley Street, opposite Boss Street. I am going to start taking photos with dates and times. I hope you don't mind me forwarding them to you, if they are of any use?

Excellent Anood - thanks for addressing this issue. Nice to meet you in Boss House the other week.
