I (along with a number of other neighbors) are frustrated with the way that one resident is abusing our boroughs codes of practice - with regard to doing construction on our street outside 35 Burma Road.

Everyday the resident is occupying the pavement, and the road, to axel grind stone for their building work.

The regulations are clear : you must apply for a permit in order to occupy road or pavement space for building works - but they have no license or application.

It is a clear abuse of our neighborhood agreements, and I want to escalate this matter to the council to enforce some proper way of dealing with this - it is simply not fair to force pedestrians onto the road, and is a hazard.

The environmental pollution and dust of the York Stone that's being cut on the road is awful, and it has been obstructing the road, is dangerous for the public walking by, and the particular area they have been occupying is the double yellow line that is designated for cars passing on the road, and has caused a build up of traffic with cars unable to pass.
