LGA responds to Sustrans report on pavement parking

Responding to a report by Sustrans, calling for pavement parking to be banned, Cllr David Renard, Local Government Association transport spokesperson, said:

“Pavement parking and damaged pavements is one of the biggest complaints from pedestrians – and not just in London. Similarly, repairing kerbs and pavements damaged by pavement parking is expensive and this funding could be better used to repair potholes, support local buses and provide more suitable parking.
