Hello - my name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
I assume it is private land?
Or is it Council land where they park?
It is a private street nothing to do with council
OK. And is there an area the public have access to? I assume you mean parking bollards to stop people parking?
It is a cobbled street that all residents are supposed to keep up with repairs to pavement etc.. on their part
So unadopted road?
Yes, parking bollards. As it is a private un-addopted street, I just needed to know if I was in my right to fit these posts
Not maintained by council
Ok. And these I imagine are permanent structures?
The ones i was thinking of are the ones that sink into the ground, otherwise I could not park there.
On right....... In that case planning would generally be required, because you can remove the post
It would only be where the item was permanent would you need permission
Once the fitting is in place it cannot be removed. The whole unit is set in concrete and the post then pulls up but remains in the body of the fitting
As for signs, no you do not need them up. I assume the bollards will be a reasonable height so people can see them, so as long as they are visible it will be fine.
Yes I know the type of unit you mean.
But you can remove or lower the bollard part, so you wouldnt need permission for that
If the posts were put in place and someone reversed into them am I responsible for the damage to the vehicle?
You can't stop someone from bringing a claim - but as long as they are reasonably obvious you wont be responsible
That's good news. Thank you for your help.
Welcome. Please remember to give my answer a great rating and have a good weekend
