The Phantom space.

There is an unofficial space in Swingate. It’s ideally located by the entrance/exit. This much sought-after space offers split-level accommodation and convenient access to the many local amenities and transport links in Stevenage town centre.

In short, it normally involves a silver VW Polo parking half-up on the kerb (usually next to a dark blue Grand Cherokee which is parked legally).

I’ve seen other improvised parking spots in Swingate and not witnessed any sanction against the perpetrators. It seems what happens in Swingate stays in Swingate.

It is odd though. The barrier counts ’em in and out so it wouldn’t let cars in if there weren’t enough spaces. The last ones to go are always the tightest to park in. Dare I suggest that some ladies just don’t fancy their chances…? Of course I daren’t.
