  • The area the vehicles are parking on is not LBB maintained but belongs to Waitrose so Parking Enforcement have no powers to ticket vehicles parked here. At this time the extent and cost of the physical barriers that would be required to block access to this piece of land is considered to be disproportionate to the problem. The Highway Inspector will continue to monitor the situation as part of the footways scheduled inspection regime.

  • So the risk of hitting a pedestrian doesn’t count for anything? You surely have the power to fine car owners for illegal behaviour?

    Also, Perigon heights planning permission had no parking provision, surely this is a breach?

  • As noted above, the installation of posts at this location (the normal practise for enforcing against this activity) is not feasible given the extent of the access and associated cost of installation. However, Bromley are aware of the issues here and have liaised with the Waitrose management to explore alternative options including reviewing the signs and parking restrictions in St Mark's Road and the possibility of large heavy plant pots to restrict access. In the meantime the footway will continue to be monitored as part of routine highway inspections.
