For parking obstruction where vehicle access is inhibited, that is, the road is blocked or otherwise impassable due to the way the vehicle has been parked; or you are unable to exit your driveway on to the road, the police may be able to make efforts to contact the registered keeper and attend if necessary and consider removing the offending vehicle. However, for the police to use these powers there must be an obstruction which makes it impassable. If you are able to pass by the vehicle, even with difficulty, then the road, footpath or driveway is not actually physically blocked and the police will not attend.

Report Noise Nuisance Click Here

Any noise, especially late at night can be very distressing. Local councils are responsible for dealing with complaints about noise. They will take action if they feel the noise is excessive and it occurs between 11pm and 7am. All councils operate an out of hours service, but many are simple answerphone systems where you will need to leave the details of your complaint. Their response to your complaints may not be immediate.

Regulation and enforcement of on-street parking restrictions, public car parks and controlled parking zone permits, the recovery of abandoned vehicles and untaxed vehicles are the responsibility of your local council.

All wild animals that come into our care at our Surrey based Wildlife Hospital are treated and rehabilitated completely free of charge. Our aim is to return every animal that is capable of surviving back to its natural environment. Unfortunately, there are still too many occasions when the illness or injury – sometimes deliberately inflicted by man – is so severe that the animal would never be able to survive in the wild. We care deeply about animal health and to be sure that every animal that comes through is completely healthy before being released.

A QUICK GUIDE TO DEALING WITH INJURED WILDLIFE

 

LEAVE ME ALONE, DONT FEED ME AND GET ME TO HOSPITAL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Try to see things from the animals point of view.

THE BEAR HUG 

If as a human you were captured by a bear and then taken to his cave and told in “bear language” that he was going to make you better, you would not relax, in fact, most of us would die of shock. Animals are not cuddled in the wild -  the only time another species touches them is when they are going to eat them!

PEEPING GIANTS

Just imagine your not well and trying to sleep and a giant kept peeling back the roof to look at you, how safe would you feel? You would either go into shock or flee for your life. Do not ‘peek’ at wildlife once you have it contained or show friends and family - leave well alone. Just as a ‘peeping- giant’ speaking in a different language would not relax you, your voice will not sooth wildlife. 

DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS YOU HAVE RESCUED 

The 1st thing you should do is contact a Wildlife Rescue or a Vet.  NIL BY MOUTH Ambulances do not bring McDonalds and Coca-Cola on Emergency calls - Animals do not need food or drink either - in fact, the wrong food could kill them.

KEEP THEM WARM

The first step of emergency treatment is to keep warm so that you can conserve energy. What little energy you have will go to your vital organs to protect them. THIS IS CALLED SHOCK.  Animals cannot and will not feed when they are in shock. We rehydrate and in most cases we don't feed any real food for 24 hours.  Keep the animals warm, away from humans, dark and quiet and get it to your nearest wildlife rescue and always call for advice first.

If you found an injured human you would get him or her to a hospital as soon as possible - PLEASE, give wildlife the same chance.
