Durban Court is a private road off Durban Road and because the entrance to the driveway leading to the bungalows there isn't an official road as such, and is unadopted by the County Council, there has been a problem with drivers parking too close to the entrance and sometimes blocking the tight turning circle into it.
Although not part of the council's highways network I was able to get agreement to have a white lane painted across the entrance at no charge to residents on this occasion. This will hopefully remind drivers to leave enough room for residents to drive in and out of their road.
