This question is concerning public highway parking in the UK

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Are there any lines?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Don't understand.....yellow lines? Obviously not.

So is it illegal - no.

There could possibly be something under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, which says you can't cause noise, smells etc.

But generally no, you can do this.

If there were yellow lines - then you could not.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

If not I would appreciate a 5 star rating for my answer. If you need more help, you can ask follow up questions for free and I would be delighted to assist. Thanks!
