Since I moved into this road in 2015, there has been a huge 1 ton bag of sand. Someone is renovating number 17 and its been sat outside there for the best part of 5yrs taking up the space of a whole car. Meaning often we have to park at the end of the street or round the corner due to lack of spaces. It needs to be removed as this renovation has been going on for years without resolution

    OK great, I'll fill up the road with 1 ton sand bags... Its acceptable during a certain period to complete building work, but just abandoning it there for 5yrs is not! Especially when the road is completely overcrowded with cars. It needs to be removed!
