See attached photo. An out of commission Royal Mail van has parked-up in front of one of the gates to the former Clark’s Wood Company yard obstructing access, which is most unsafe in the event of a fire in the yard, as both gated entrances to the yard are now blocked by van dwellers.

  • This Royal Mail van has now moved away, but I think it would still be relevant to erect a chain, or some sort of barrier, to prevent another vehicle from obstructing this gate in the future.
