  1. Is there any way they could have the workmen parking on site instead of clogging the local area?

  2. Disable people can’t park near shop, with the clogging in the road!!!

  3. I agree as this may be affecting local businesses. What has happened to Twitter goue parking only

  4. Absolutely spot on Chris, I have a pic taken last year with 7 of their vans parked outside Cranham shops….

  5. Parking issues to continue then and irritate the local residents and effect those wanting to support local shops. Never seen any apology for this or solutions being offered.

  6. I agree with the parking issue, when I go to work in the morning all their service vehicles park out side the shops and normally stay there all day, which prevents disabled or elderly locals using the shops. I appreciate they have to park somewhere but they are able bodied and there is plenty of on street parking in local streets! Perhaps a max 2 hour parking immediately outside the shops?
