This right applies to all frontholders, does it mean therefore that no parking is permitted on the road including visitors and trades people at any time, including ourselves outside the frontage of our own house ? (it is a two way road).
The road is only wide enough to park a car on one side so as to allow passage on the other side for vehicles. So essentially a first come first served basis.
My nieghbour opposite considers that I should not park outside my house as it makes it difficult for him to maneuver from his drive and in particular in and out of his full house width paved front with removed fence and incorporated path.
He considers that as he has created a 'full width drive' he is entitled to full width access and egress at all times and this means I should not park outside my house (even though I park 4m to the side of the original drive).
We try to live with and accommodate all our nieghbours but surely this is an unacceptable abuse of his rights?
All frontholders have been parking their cars, visitor's cars and tradesmen's vehicles on the road for 80 years, either outside their house or wherever there is a space, without any parking rights issues arising. Does this not mean that parking rights have been acquired by all ?
