Hi dear,

two months ago i parked outside my friends house where there is a parking space on the footpath and went to work.

My friend called me soon after she noticed that i had parked in there to let me know that the sign for this parking space had been removed by haringey council about a year ago without previous warning. She had actually seen the people removing it and asked them what was going on to which they replied that they were getting the sign back. They never did!!! When I got back home i did some research and found that if the council was to remove a parking space they had to let the public know by letting the bussenesses, neighbours and local paper aware of their intentions. None of this happened, they didnt warn any motorist of this parking removal with any signs and as it was very small it is very difficult to notice it.

I then challenge the council and explained what i have just said and that I would like the fine to be removed as well as having a sign in the parking space making other driver aware of the removal of this parking space and the consecuence risk of been fined.


After two months they have writen back to me saying that they are rejecting my informal challenge as


-the penalty charge was issued for parking with one or more wheels on any part of an urban road other than a carriageway (footway parking). Any part of the public highway not set aside for vehicles is covered by the footway ban and includes pavements, grass verges, central reservations, ramps linking private property to the road ( vehicle croos over) and other pedestrian areas. Vehicles should only be parked with all the wheels on the road. Unless authority has been given by haringey council for vehicles to park on the footway or grass verge, then parking in this way is not aloud. Permitted for footway parking has not been granted to haringey council in that part of priory road n8. The reason for this is to ensure the safety of road users and pedestrians and to prevent damage to the footway. I am there satisfied that the penalty charge notice was served correctly and i am not willing to cancel it.


i believe they are avoiding putting a sign out as other motorist might be challenging other charges. Also the whole road has parking on top of the pavement on both sides of the road which seems to me contradicting themselves!!!


I would apreciate if anyone could give me any advice as i would have to pay the fine otherwise in 10 days.


Many thanks

Hello Mr Browne,

it was ouside number 11 priory road, right after the traffic lights. I have had a look at google street map under camfrey court, priory road n8 and you can see the spot as well as the other cars parked on the pavement a bit further up the road.

Sorry i dont know how to post the google street into the message.

thanks for coming back

The difference is that where those cars are parked there is a sign allowing pavement parking and clearly defined markings on the pavement, but nothing outside no 11.


If as you say, it was removed outside no 11, yes there should have been a public notice in the press,but there would be no requirement to notify individual residents /businesses. However more importantly they would have to amend the Traffic Regulation Order for Priory Road, which they may not have done.


You would need to view the TRO at your council offices and check whether it still allows pavement parking outside no 11.

I understand what you mean though in this specific spot there was a sign allowing parking space as well as the marking on the pavement. The sign is gone and the lines for the parking space is fading which i dont know if it is due to weather conditions or wether it has been cleared by the council.

As you have suggested I would have a look at the TRO and see if there is still allow to park in there.

Thank you so much for your help
