Parked cars blocking pavement

Further to the previous post here concerning the hole that’s appeared in the pavement at the junction between Coaley and Dursley road, the route cause of this is the inconsiderate people from Dursley road mounting the pavement and parking their cars in positions that make the pavement impassable, meaning people now have to walk in the road to get around them, and when they all go to work the pavement is left free for the pedestrians to break their ankles in the hole they’ve caused. On that note please check this issue in the evening as this is when it’s at it’s worse. Not only are they causing issues to pedestrians, they are parking their cars within 10 meters of the junction causing issues to motorists as well. And the overgrown hedge is only a concern because of how people park! So just to confirm the issue I’m reporting is cars being left parked on pavement leaving no room for pedestrians to pass. The areas of concern is from the last house on Coaley road (even house number side) up to the junction of Dursley road.
A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.

Just to add to this, the potholes appear after the visit of a flatbed lorry with crane and 'legs'. This section of pavement is in need of investigation and repair so when pedestrians can get to walk on it they can do so safely. Traffic enforcement is required to promote sensible parking.
