Hundreds of Gloucester residents living on narrow streets have received letters from the city council asking them to move their cars so that waste collection lorries can get down their streets.
Councillor Saj Patel, cabinet member for environment, said: “Residents have been complying with the request. Some cars had been damaged previously.”
Councillor Susan Witts (LD, Elmbridge) said some residents in her ward had complained about the unsigned letters.
But Mr Patel said although they were unsigned they were on official council paper and that residents in his area, in Matson Place, had also been asked to relocate their cars to allow the wagons down the street.
