Cleanglass: council response?

Between 8 and 9 am every morning, exactly the time when children are walking up the pavement to school, it is blocked by Cleanglass vans parking across the pavement while they fill up their vans (from a residential house). When are the council going to do something about this? And before Cleanglass come on here saying they dont block the pavement, I have plenty of photographic proof!!!

I imagine the water company would also be interested in a domestic supply being used for business purposes. Unless its metered of course.

Report through operation crackdown, I believe they have already had a warning from the old bill which they blatantly ignore. Maybe the more people who report will get something more forceful done.

The state of these verges throughout the winter months are disgusting. The council need to bollard to stop them being destroyed by the likes of Cleanglass and parents collecting/dropping of children.

I wonder if it's legal to run a business like that from a residential premises?
It's not like it's someone doing home hairdressing or running a plumbing business, where they all do is have people arrive at the house or park one vehicle there. It sounds as though there are several vans messing up the local area and the thing of trailing hoses across the pavement every day is causing a nuisance.
Our helpful and efficient planners might possibly be able to do something.

Thanks for the responses. I shall be forwarding my photos as appropriate. Shame they just can't stop doing it as they know it causes problems and it can't be nice for people living near them. If their business is successful they should invest some money and get a drive put in.

They have a job to do, perhaps a family a feed and require a roof over their head. So what if they fill their water up from the house. So what if they park on the verge, or block the pavement, cross the road and walk on the other side. They haven't got anywhere else to park and probably have to have the van parked there in order to fill up and would be beaten to it by people parking and walking in to lewes or police HQ. Just get on with your own lives and let people go about business.

Typical response from an 'I'm alright Jack' type. We all have to work. It doesn't mean we can do what we like and have NO RESPECT for other people and residents nearby. Are you suggesting nursery and primary school kids, women with buggies etc should cross a busy road, cos Cleanglass think they own the road outside their house? It is already dangerously slippery due to the mud everywhere.

@PoPK - 'I'm alright Jack', not sure you have any idea! But I will warrant you with a response. I know it isn't ideal, but these vans need filling with water for these people to work, therefore just understand a little it isnt all about you

How about they park correctly on the road and get a longer hose?? It's not rocket science. It's not me I am worried about. It's kids and other people who cant use the pavement. Clearly you are a friend of them

Who are those window cleaners I see round the town squirting water at windows when it's raining? Do people actually pay to have this done?

I see your point windy, but they use softened water that leaves no streaks. So it is as effective as if they had cleaned and then a while later it had rained. The bucket, squeegee and shammy is long gone. The new technology is much more effective.
