How do I approach a Neighbour for parking?
If you do find that you have issues with your neighbours when it comes to parking, speak to them, be polite and don’t threaten them. Do not retaliate by blocking their drive, parking outside their property or in their space. Usually, these problems can be sorted out with a few carefully chosen polite words.
How close to corner can you park?

Is it illegal to park to close to someone?
The police are keen to remind people that it’s not ‘your right’ to park in front of your house – unless you have a designated parking space. There’s also no law on how long someone can park in the same space for, unless police think the car has been abandoned and decide to remove it.
Is it legal to park opposite someones driveway?

How do you ask your neighbor to move your car?
