Motor Trader using junction of Berryhill and Earlshall road(both sides)with Glenesk road(both sides)and sometimes Elibank for selling and storage of small vans,large vans and two Low loaders with large vans on top. Total Number is at least 8.Some have not been moved for ten years resulting in blocked drains. Utility company was unable to access road surface due to refusal of owner of vans to comply. This is the reason that the Company’s metal hut has been blocking the pavement here for at least 7 years. The owner of the vans uses a Vehicle business insurance because it is a business and trading goes on from his house on junction of Glenesk and Earlshall roads.

  • Problem not fixed after at least ten years of use of public streets used as a dump yard by a House-owner trading as motor dealer from his house. Today he has a cable stretching diagonally across a junction of Earlshall &Glenesk roads charging the battery of one of the large low loaders he owns. This is one of @ten vans of all sizes he owns. Many not moved for years.

    This van is being charged and the cable is being run across Glenesk Rd. Very dangerous.

  • This problem has not been fixed, there are still nine vehicles parked In Earlshall Road, some never move, others are rotated while a new vehicle is brought and put in its place. There are vehicles left on a low loader in Berry hill and various vehicles dotted about it Glenesk Rd. These vehicles pose as a hazard when crossing and pulling in and out of Glenesk/ Earlshall Rd. Does an accident need to happen before this unsafe and unsightly hoarding of unroadworthy vehicles are left to decay before Greenwich Council asks the owner to remove these vehicles or better still have them removed?

  • Not fixed. We are talking about a problem unchanged for at least 15 years. There are at least 10 large vans and low loaders there making this a dangerous junction. The owners house is obvious because the drive is also full causing more blockage to drivers sight lines. This is a motor trading business run from a house.

  • These reports by various posters have been left for the last ten years as the problem has existed this long. The road junction is dangerous due to one corner house owner using public space as a private workshop and van sales yard. Pollution to drains and public utility companies are unable to access for essential work because the Council and DVLA are refusing to police public property and road safety

  • As reported by various residents over at least ten years this is ongoing! The problem is dangerous parking: large vehicles blocking view at a busy car and pedestrian junction. It’s a problem because Utility companies are unable to do work there due to refusal of vehicles’ owner to move them: the metal hut has been there for five years awaiting work by these companies. Finally it is a private house being used as an Auto-trade business: Ten plus large vans including ex-Ambulance,two low-loaders with vans on top being stored, repaired bought and sold on a residential street. The Residents association and lots of locals have complained over Fifteen years about this and it is time the Council and presumably Government(in the guise of Inland revenue) should be dealing with it
