Two months after a council pledge to crack down on problem parking in Barking housing estate, tenants keep leaving cars on a square children play on.
Up to 15 cars piled into the square in the Harts Lane Estate each day, said resident Robert Flack back in July.
He said a missing bollard on the pavement opposite S.S. Store, off Cowbridge Lane, needs replacing to stop people driving through and parking on the square.
Children play football on the square after school, the 64-year-old added.
Barking and Dagenham Council said it would fix the issue and meet Mr Flack, but he heard nothing back.
A spokesman said the council would hold a public consultation with residents on parking issues within the estate.
“We have spoken to our contractors and they will install the replacement as soon as we have obtained a quote for the best value for money,” he said.
