  1. Hello, First, look at the Google Street View here: http://goo.gl/maps/3uGzt This is a cul-de-sac with a few residential houses further down the road. No shops or businesses apart from a lone GP surgery. And a pedestrian entrance to a multi-storey car park. Until 2003, the road had 11 time-limited parking bays along its eastern side. This was sufficient as it was at the heart of an industrial estate at the time. What can now be seen as a shiny new residential development along the street, was then a power station. In 2003, a new, privately-owned multi-storey car park was opened off the road. Then, the local council issued a TRO that removed all the 11 parking spaces from this road and introduced no waiting (= double yellow lines) all over. Drivers visiting the nearby Kingston centre for shopping have since been forced to use this private car park. Link to the TRO: https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/57010 In 2014, the area lost its former industrial character altogether when the last non-residential site, the power plant, was built over with 150+ flats. Now, I believe that the council has gone too far introducing such restrictions on this particular street. I argue that parking along the street would not cause congestion (this is a cul-de-sac!), obstruct traffic (the road is more than 8 metres wide!) or block access to businesses along it (there are none!). The only effect of the lines is increase in income for the car park owner (who now asks £1800 per year for a parking space) and a huge trouble for the residents of the new development (which contains no parking spaces on it own but has 6 wheelchair-adapted flats = at least 6 people with mobility issues). Since people started living in the development, parking wardens have been on the spree, issuing dozens of tickets, mainly to blue badge holders who have no choice but to park in front of the building, and to the surgery's patients. I will be grateful for any advice, esp. as to where this could be challenged and what law can be applicable.
