Anti-social parking on a cul-de-sac in Morley could end in “tragedy,” according to a resident.
Twenty homeowners from Siegen Close have signed a petition asking for the council to clearly mark on the road, ‘No Parking’ for unauthorised vehicles.
The close, which is a sheltered community with a warden, has an access ramp half way up the street to allow permitted vehicles to go to and from the top. But Colin Roberts said that people have been parking unlawfully and blocking access to the close for vehicles such as ambulances, funeral directors and refuse collection. Pensioner Mr Roberts, who has been living on the close with his civil partner Paul Marsden for the past three years, said that on some occasions vehicles had not been able to gain access which has resulted in rubbish not being collected.
