Someone is parking outside of my house, what can I do?

Question:
Someone is parking outside of my house, what can I do?
Answer:

Homeowners or residents living next to public highways have no legal right to the road and/or footway fronting their property boundaries. If there are no parking restrictions and vehicles are parked in contravention of the rules of the Highway Code the matter can be reported to the police who have access to powers enabling them to identify vehicle owners and issue on the spot fines if necessary.

Our clear streets team coordinates the civil enforcement resource in Staffordshire and further information on our enforcement responsibilities, and who you should contact if there is a problem; can be found on the parking enforcement section.

In the absence of any parking restrictions such as double yellow lines, there is very little we can do to prevent parking. If the parking is causing obstruction to private accesses, this should be reported to the police. If the parking is dangerous, this should also be reported to the police.
