Overhanging car/van obstructing walkway

Reported via mobile in the Obstructions on pavements and roads category anonymously at 07:31, Sunday 16 May 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2728562.

Due to overhanging of car and van at 47 Grosvenor Road, Bexleyheath resulting in the pathway is being obstructed continually. This is becoming a problem with some residence in the road. Some issues are quiet easily solved if bins are positioned on the drive in a different location. Resident at 47 has recently dropped the kerb outside the property, another confusion is the half painted parking box still outside number 47, is this still a parking space? Bad parking on drives is resulting in walking into the road. This is putting pedestrians at risk and surely is a safety problem. Also the corner outside number 53 is also becoming a major issue this week when on several occasions lorries have not been able to get passed. An emergency vehicle would have a problem and bin lorries can have problems driving passed on a Tuesday morning when rubbish is collected if a parked vehicle has not been removed can occur . Could yellow lines be placed on all corners in Grosvenor Road and Olron Crescent? Recently in Grosvenor Road parking problems seem to be increasing. Plus double parking is also becoming an issue. Leaving a very tight gap to drive through. Perhaps a representative from the council could come and view these issues later in the day and on a weekend when this problem increases. Could you send letters to residents in Grosvenor Road Bexleyheath asking them to position the bins on driveways so vehicle(s) can be parked reasonably and not blocking pathways and putting pedestrians at danger having then walking in the road.
