The council has pledged to stop tenants parking in a square children use to play football.
The square, off Cowbridge Lane in Barking’s Harts Lane Estate has been crammed with up to 15 cars every day for the past three months.
Robert Flack, who lives in Harts Lane, says a missing bollard on the pavement opposite S.S. Store needs to be replaced to stop people driving through the ones that remain to use the square as a car park.
“It makes me so angry when I go through that square,” the 64-year-old said. “When kids come from school they want to play in that square.”
A council spokesman said it was working to address the issues.
“We have raised the issue of replacing the bollard with our contractors and are chasing progress on the works,” he said. “Officers are arranging to meet with Mr Flack to address his concerns.”
