Anti-DVLA Parking Ban Proposed By Local Community

November, 19 2014

DVLA

A Swansea community at war with Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency workers could bring in a one-hour parking ban.

Residents of Heol Pentrefelin have been offered the ban to combat DVLA staff parking in front of their homes.

The ban would cover 24 estate roads in the area and would mean parking on the street between 10AM and 11AM on weekends would be outlawed.

As these are typically within the working hours of DVLA Swansea, staff would be unable to avoid a ticket if they park in front of local housing.

The proposal is currently under a 10-day consultation ran by County Councillor Gareth Sullivan. Residents are encouraged to voice any concerns they have by then.

“Letters have gone out and people have been asked to indicate whether they want to support the idea or not,” said Gareth Sullivan.

“Where people have concerns I have asked them to put them down on the letter.”

The number of vehicles left parked on the street sometimes prevents buses from passing.

Residents and DVLA staff have reportedly been hostile to each other for more than a decade, however some believe that the suggested ban might go too far and drive the DVLA out of Swansea completely, costing the area jobs.
