This car has been parked in my space for 2 weeks. The space is designated to Flat 8 Crown House, Plumstead road and is private property with its own car park. This person has refused to move and it’s causing massive inconvenience. I can see the case was opened and closed within four days but the car is still there. Can this car be towed? I need my space back
