Incorrect sign

Good morning.

I live at 35 Whitefield Road, Bristol, BS5 7TJ.

However, the sign that leads to the rank of houses (33-43 Whitefield Road) that sits directly on the wall to the area they are based says "Parade Mews". Looking at your map, the area directly out the front of the houses (i.e. in reality our driveways) also says "Parade Mews". This however is incorrect - Parade Mews does not exist; we are 33-43 Whitefield Road. As you can imagine, this causes enormous confusion whenever we get deliveries or post. My request is to have the current plaque (to be fair it's more a plaque than an actual road sign) changed from "Parade Mews" to "33-43 Whitefield Road". This would remove all confusion and massively assist my neighbours and I, who are forever having to call delivery companies to explain how to get to our properties. The issue has existed since the properties were built - my guess is that the properties in question were originally meant to be "33-43 Parade Mews, Bristol", but this got changed at the last minute to be an additional part of Whitefield Road, but the signs never got changed/were forgotten about. On the face of it I accept it may appear a rather minor gripe, but in reality it really would make a huge difference to the residents that reside in our rank of houses. Only yesterday I had another parcel fail to be delivered because the courier couldn't locate the property and, to be fair to them, it doesn't surprise me - it's odd enough you have to take the road for Parade Court to access our property at 35 Whitefield Road, but even more bizarre that you then have to enter an area marked "Parade Mews".

I look forward to hopefully hearing from you shortly.

Kind regards,

Mr Ben Manns
