Royal Mail workers parking cars on Thorpe Astley Residential Estate
For some time now, workers at the Royal Mail and surrounding businesses use the roads on the residential estate at Thorpe Astley (mainly the top end of Foxon Way) to park their cars and then walk to work. This is causing an obstruction to residents coming in and out of Birchnall Road (obstructed view of traffic coming off the roundabout down Foxon Way) and cars are often parked adjacent to the entrance/exit of Owen Close causing further obstruction to traffic trying to turn left (due to oncoming traffic). This seems to be a 24-hour situation as cars are parked there day and night, 6-7 days a week (pictures of this can be provided upon request which were taken today 24/03 at 11:00am).
As a resident, I feel this is not acceptable and not what I expected to be faced with on a daily basis battling with parked cars and other traffic trying to leave my own home. With that in mind, I have already contacted the Royal Mail to lodge my complaint with them (as detailed above) and I have received a Complaint Reference Number of 1-383371**** which has been forwarded on to the Sorting Centre on the Meridian site and I have also contacted the Blaby Council detailing the same complaint, receiving the reference number of FS5030****
