@Morty Vicker re your post dated 12.5.16 21:18 Any chance you could post the text of that letter on here or post a link that would take us to the text?

A similar thought went through my mind but along the lines of if those who live along the road in Starcross/Kenton have private drives/off road parking what's to stop them allowing cars to pick up and drop off on their private property?

Unfortunately the polls for the local councils are some 3 and a bit years away and if a week is a long time in politics then .............
