His story will enrage homeowners. A doctor who's spent years fighting attempts to fine him for parking his scooter on his own land lost a court ruling that means YOU could now be fined for parking on your own drive

From reading the article it seems to be saying that if you own land, either a driveway or a garden and there is no physical barrier marking it off as your own then the council can issue parking tickets on it.

 

In other words if you have an open driveway or garden and you park there then you could get a ticket

I suppopse one can feel sympathetic about the good doc's situation though I don't see anything about who laid the tarmac strip, doc or council, and why weren't the original railings reinstated? I doubt anyones' drive would be considered part of the footpath, though if you park part on your drive and part on the pavement you're obviously going to elicit the interest of parking authorities. Perhaps the doc's £10,000 would have been better spent on railing off his own property.:-)

Mods - this is a duplicated thread on the same subject matter.

Can it be incorporated with the original thread started yesterday by 'My Real Name' & entitled 'Fined by council for parking on private land'?

Only if its used a public highway in which case I'm sure having the public waltzing through your front garden and trampling through your flower beds would be more of a concern than getting a parking ticket. Unless it goes somewhere it is not highway most drives end at the garage or front of the house so their would be no reason for the public to pass and re pass.

From the google street view link that G&M posted elsewhere, it would appear that the land forms an integral part of the roadway (being part of the footway next to the carriageway).
