Lettering on the ground outside an Elm Park car park is being investigated, it has been confirmed.

The private facility on the corner of Northwood Avenue and Saint Nicholas Avenue is managed by One Parking Solution Limited.

A resident - who wishes to remain anonymous - has claimed painted signage at the entrance and exit of the car park has been drawn on the council's footpath.

This newspaper has learned that environment enforcement officers from the council have visited the site and sent One Parking Solution two fixed penalty notices and a community protection warning demanding the removal of the lettering.

Elm Park councillor Barry Mugglestone has also been pressing the council to remove this "encouraging" lettering.

The Residents' Group councillor is concerned that, should people be lured into the car park by the signage, they may be hit with unexpected charges.

"I want to protect the residents of Elm Park," he said.
