Just asked the question and hit the search button. This is what came up. Can you park anywhere on a public road? As long as your vehicle is taxed and you are not contravening any other traffic laws, you are allowed to park anywhere on a public highway (but not on footpaths/pavements) where it is legal to do so. 25 Jan 2022 Provided your street isn't governed by ...

@Daverc : My understanding is that anyone can park on the road, whether it be outside their own home or not, as long as there are no yellow lines & they are not blocking access to anyone else's property. Maybe someone else knows different?

@Cassandra : the last sentence.  AFAIK, householders have no rights to any part of the Queen's Highway (whether it is outside their property or not) except the common right of free passage.  I remember Cllr John Clatworthy saying 'parking on the highway is a privilege not a right'.

Another way to help Ukraine (and all other democracies for that matter) help put pressure on the following to withdraw their businesses from Russia. Boycott them! Coca Cola, MacDonalds, KFC, Pepsi, Burger King, Starbucks. See https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-60649214

Can't agree Cassandra.  What you say sounds like common sense but I believe it isn't so.  Happy to be corrected if anyone knows better.

Probably the same problems as experienced by people on other side of town with building contractors trying to access sites. Last Friday lorry driver delivering to Longlands site by way of Lower Meadow Rise complained about people parking on road making it difficult for him. Um, these people actually live here & so entitled to park in their own street!

Just been looking at the planning docs re this development. Seems Devon County Council Highways department can't see any problems with construction traffic having to use Elm Grove Road. This is what the officer's report (23/9/20) had to say; " An additional representation has been received objecting to the proposal with concerns regarding additional major development in this area and ...
