VIP parking” how is this acceptable by the council done by the owner of marwan motors 5/6 Vicarage park

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 17:11, Sunday 6 September 2020

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

Report 1: Why is it okay to park this van up on a pavement on a public footpath therefore creating obstacle for the residents and locals plus there kids and the council aren’t doing anything about the person who commits this offence which is the owner/ employees of “marwan motors garage”. 5/6 Vicarage park. “ please see photo insert attached”

Report 2: Cars are being worked on, dumped, some have tires filled to the brim, untaxed cars etc all due to this garage business (marwan garage 5/6 Vicarage park), To add an insult the owner and his employees seem to think it’s okay to be taking cars apart on the side road, up on the pavement , spilling oil creating unnecessary noise, anti social behaviour etc. as a resident am worried about the lack of inconsideration The owner seems to have towards the residents and there peace of mind.

  • Totally agree. This d*uche bag also leaves the company van parked on Vicarage Park overnight and at weekends, including all the cars queued for work including the ones not roadworthy. Vicarage Road residents should not struggle to find parking because of that. Council don't really care about you, else they would have enforced... remember their enforcement staff have to witness this else they cannot act... and there are they? lol.. so it is important you make all this clear in the CPZ (controlled parking zone) online questionnaire that must be filled in by 25/09. I trues all residents received the letter? This is only the first step of course. I don't know if anyone passes Conduit Road Motor Garage (on way to Tesco for example) - they have CPZ in place but all day is full of the company trailers, and customer vehicles. So will be interesting to see hoe M*rwan Motors will work with a business permit and also the 'bonnet up being worked on vehicles' which is a contravention of the council's business regulations (so do try and capture that being done if possible). If we want this residential area to have any form of discipline and not feel threatened by the staff and their thuggish style we are going to have to fight. In the mean time, please keep sharing this (although GC do state that their own vehicles utility firms and emergency vehicles can park there... however look at school closing time every day and it's rammed full of parents who IMO are just as bad you can't even squeeze a car through sometimes and the school head should really be sent a letter). Anyway I digress, for anyone reading this:


    And have your comments seen by the Transportation team at RBG.

  • I’ve lived here for twenty years and the garage close by has just caused absolute mayhem.

    When going past, I often have to wait several minutes as cars wait outside of the garage, talking to the mechanics. They’re either consulting on the car problems in the middle of the road causing a huge queue of cars waiting.

    Secondly, I’ve never been able to park on vicarage road to bring groceries in my house or even clean my car. Due to the amount of cars that are untaxed or broken just parked up on every street surrounding this garage.

    There are often arguments causing noise pollution as well as polluting the area with the littered vehicles everywhere.

    The residents are extremely at our wits end with the garage causing countless problems. Please look at this issue properly.

    And everyone take part in the survey to get our voices heard!
