A Chorleywood resident has been left feeling “utterly frustrated” after allegedly having been fined several times for parking her car outside her own home.
Bertiel Grant lives on Hillside Road and is fed up with the issues she has had to deal with since Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) introduced permit parking zones in the village.
Residents must now pay £30 a year for a permit to park in provided bays.
However, despite parking in the designated place, buying a permit and displaying it correctly, Bertiel says that she has repeatedly received notices telling her she must pay a fine for illegal parking.
She said: “It’s happened about five or six times to me. I just get so utterly frustrated. I’ve had all kinds of local councillors down to talk about the problem, and they’ve all said they’ll do something. Yet nothing’s happened.
“I’m a Lib Dem politically, but I won’t be voting for the Lib Dem councillors again until this issue is sorted.”
A spokesperson for TRDC said: “The parking restrictions in both Hillside Road and South Road – which include a zone requiring a permit – are clearly marked on the signage in the area.
“Parking restrictions for Three Rivers are enforced under an agency agreement by Hertsmere Borough Council’s civil enforcement team.”
Lib Dem councillor Phil Williams said: “Three Rivers is currently in the process of consulting Chorleywood residents on a new parking scheme. Hopefully, this will prevent residents receiving penalty notices.”
