So, Stewart thinks that having the facility to park more than two cars off the street should invoke an increase in tax. Why? What about the hazards parked cars present to children? Or the potential clogging of smaller roads? Or coming home only to find that you can't park outside your own home? It is a fact of life that a substantial number of homes have two or more cars nowadays. It is far safer and secure to park on a driveway or in a garage than to leave them on the road side. Why do you think insurance premiums are lower if parked off road?

I agree that new installations should be laid in a way to aid drainage but to suggest that an increase in tax for drives able to house more than two cars is, quite frankly, ridiculous.


I agree.  Council tax is calculated according to property size/value, so the size of the driveway/parking space is already subject to tax.

Beautiful garden

The Garden RHS magazine has a property section in the small-ads at the back - I've a feeling the National Trust magazine does too.
