Parking space in residential areas has declined significantly in the last 10 years, figures show
The average amount of space for parking in residential areas has shrunk by 9% in the last 10 years.
Yet the number of cars has grown 15% over the last decade and vehicles are getting bigger, a survey covering England by car insurance company LV= showed.
In the years from 2001 to 2011, motorists in England have seen the space available for parking near their homes decrease from just over 32ft to 29ft 5in. During that time the number of cars in England has grown 15% and the average car is now around 14ft 1in long - about six inches more than 10 years ago.
