Areas of Law / Property

Residents living on our private, unadopted road are constantly plagued by other people’s cars, for example students from the nearby halls of residence or visitors to the chip shop on the end. Notices stating that it’’s a private road and that parking is for residents only are completely ignored. What can we do?

If you could get everyone to agree you could install locked or electrically-operated gates at the end of the road (or at least beyond the chip shop). It would have to be a unanimous decision however and private gates can bring problems of their own. You could call a residents’ meeting, and if the idea receives unequivocal support ask a solicitor to attend to explain the issues involved.
