1. Your local county Council is responsible for parking enforcement across your area. So, if there is a No Parking sign on the land, your County Council have a power to issue parking tickets to anyone parking on it. The County Council do not actually need to own the land to issue parking tickets in relation to it. The County Council only have to specify it as an area of no parking in their bye-laws. So, if it is not the local County Council who have erected the No Parking notice, then you should get the local County Council to specify the piece of land as a No Parking area in their local bye laws. They will have a general power at law under the Highways Act to issue a ticket if any car is blocking the access road. So you should simply get the local County Council parking enforcement officer to issue tickets to anyone blocking the access road the next time it happens.
2. You should also realise that there is no general power to clamp given at common law. This means that a private citizen, such as you, cannot clamp a car which is parking on this strip. So you will need the help of the local County Council to deal with unauthorised parking here.
