Would anyone who has received a PCN where, ironically, these two cars were parked when the google streemap car came past, as cars often are, please email email@example.com with the details, especially of any successful challenges.
The PCN you will have received is likely to be for parking on the footpath (code 62) or any part of a road other than a carriageway, which gives councils enormous scope to ticket you between the building lines on both sides of the road, in this case anywhere up to the brick wall.
The council don't care that cars will have parked here for time immemorial without causing the slightest problem, wheelchairs & prams can still pass easily along the true pavement, they just want your money. The alternative to parking at this spot is to park on the opposite side of the road, on a slight bend which means that overtaking cars have to cross the centre white line with a blind bend approaching.
Mr Mustard hasn't heard of a PCN in front of the church, but it is probably only a matter of time.
It would be helpful of the council to mark out some parking bays.
Next Sunday's sermon will feature two of the seven deadly sins: Greed (of the council for PCN income) and Pride (civic, lack of).
Mr Mustard may well have made up the previous line.
