Contractors cars wrecking the grass verges, 7th October

Wed, 07 Oct 2020 22:51:54 +0100
51.80054 -0.36463

There was once a lovely house here, and now developers have put 3 executive dolls houses in its place. Worse still, there has been approx 10-12 cars and vans parked on the GRASS VERGE, and this is being damaged. The white hoardings also look a mess and like a 2nd world war bomb site. The vehicles also look unsightly and should be clamped. Since when has it been legal to park on a grass verge ? Harpenden is being systematically dumbed down brick by brick, make no mistake about it. Have some respect, Eric Morecombe once lived around here.

White vans and builders vehicles, 26th August

Wed, 26 Aug 2020 11:44:55 +0100
51.798754 -0.357108

This just makes the area unsightly, and there is almost never a time when there is not a skip 'on the go' or some other form of demolition or construction/building work. It is very tiresome and never ending, and makes the area Un-Posh. It was once a pleasure to see a tall pin striped stock-broker with bowler hat and briefcase in hand (and a pink paper) doing a silly walk down the road to catch a train. If you have any sense of humour, you will know what this means. P.s. is this the 2mm social distancing or the full 2 metres ? (I'm sure you will work this one out if you have seen a certain comedy series).
