When vehicles park in prohibited areas, it restricts local access and traffic flow and compromises the safety of pedestrians.
If you have a parking concern that impacts traffic flow, local access and people’s safety, report it to us.
It's hard to take action without having lots of detail about the issue. Take notes including the vehicle registration number, make/model of the vehicle, time and date of the incident, how long the vehicle was parked, identity of the driver (if known).
Take some photos at different angles or a video for evidence so we can investigate thoroughly.
