Parking is chaotic- vehicles reverse into my garage up the kerb causing damage

Reported via desktop in the Pavement and Cycle path category anonymously at 09:23, Wednesday 21 July 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 359533.

I have had extensive damage caused to my garage twice now over the last three years by vehicles mounting the kerb and hitting my garage wall. I would very much like to request the installation of a pole or bollard or alternative at your suggestion into the pavement at the corner to protect my garage wall please. This damage causes me much stress and worry and lots of costs by having to have the wall rebuilt and garage door replaced. I would appreciate a site visit so I can explain the problem properly.
