In the past year Greenwich Council have made a big thing about building new homes. And rightfully so, as many are good design and much needed.
Residents have reported it many times. Enforcement is rarely ever seen. It keeps happening.
I wrote this on 23rd November. On 24th Greenwich Council replied to a resident to say they went around and talked to a resident. I presume no fine? Let’s see how long it lasts.
The philosophy of going green and energy efficient housing is hampered if a complete mess is made of parking enforcement in some areas. People will simply drive instead of walking when getting about is full of obstructions. Where they don’t have that option, pedestrians are forced into using the road. Those in wheelchairs and parents with buggies are impacted greatly.
One possible reason for no fine if it wasn’t issued – and barely any enforcement – that this area could be part of the disastrous outsourced Wings Security contract which permits a free for all in many areas.
