Excatly, @modboy There is almost always a parking space available but people think it’s ok to park on the pavement without paying - and that they would get a ticket elsewhere but not on the pavement. I’m sure that’s the reason. How silly.
jOn Scarlet Close I spoke to a driver blocking the pavement entirely. He told me the Gemini attendant ha s actually told him to park there as if he stayed on the road, he’d have to give a ticket, but he couldn’t give a ticket to anyone entirely off the road!
The other stupid thing was the driver was picking up a load of stuff from his son’s flat, and the loading bay opposite was entirely empty
About 7pm this evening. Occupants (at least one resident) got threatening and aggressive when I picked them up on their parking. @evml hopefully has cctv. If @TriathlonHomes @Triathlon_Homes or @GetLivingLondon can identify them, are they at risk of losing their home for threatening neighbours?
@Falco Did EVML say they read this or do they need a screen grab sent?
@jools I got seriously threatened too - once.
No, Triathlon/GLL/EVML/EVRA don’t read this, I had to provide a pdf printout.
If I were you, I’d definitely contact security, or even better: the police.
@Falco which then, on turn, will do it themselves. See earlier pic of mine.
I think the real issue is a lack of short stay bays for eg. delivery drivers. I see many of these double park, and it tends to happen on my side of the village because there is simply no alternative.
Petition against pavement parking from Living Streets. Apparently Government promised action/investigation two years ago, but still nothing.
Can you share the contact details of the people you’ve been dealing with?
Think nothing will happen until it’s properly somebody’s issue to deal with
Parking on the pavement is illegal in London.
I think the complication arises that these streets are private (Scarlet, Logan, Napa, etc) and are patrolled by Gemini and not Newham Council parking inspectors who do fine for pavement parking.
Thank you for sending this through. This has been forwarded to our Team East Village Security and parking teams.
Appreciate you sending through the photograph as well.

I watched this guy drive along the pavement for 50 metres from Celebration Av. to park on this bit of pavement. This really needs sorting out.
Thanks for replying Sam
Please ensure that the security team are aware that residents have been physically threatened on more than one occasion for trying to address this issue with drivers. I have watched EVML staff ignore this issue in the past, but hope that will change
Parent with pushchair? Wheelchair user? Mobility issues? Don’t give a F*. Get in the road.
If you want to sell you’re car in EV, why not park it on the pavement to take the photos? It looks so much better there than on the road!
Any recommendation of who “in power” might respond? Having just been threatened again by a neighbour who frequently drives along the pavement on Honour Lea Avenue, and who actually seems to believe that pavement is theirs to do what they want with, I’d like to see if it isn’t putting their tenancy at risk. I have their address
EV security turned up as well and were absolutely trying their best to not get involved.
