AIBU to move them?

We live in a street where there in no ORF.

Parking is an issue.

People across the road have had their house up for sale for some time - intermittently over the last few weeks have been putting cones outside their house to park a big van (no permission ASAIK) presumably to take stuff to dump.

I have to go out later and know I will prob end up parking 2 streets away - WIBU to move one of his bloody cones as he doesn’t seem to be moving imminently....?

Perfectly reasonable

How long are the cones out for? I think it’s neighbourly to let them do it, if it’s occasional, and they genuinely are loading. They don’t have any rights to, but I wouldn’t see it as a big deal.

It’s coning off a huge empty space big enough for two cars

If it’s stiil there (the empty space) when I return in three hours I am sorely tempted ...

Do it

Park there!

If they had spoken to close by neighbours and said “I knows it’s a pain but it would be helpful if...” then that would be one thing but they can’t just bagsy spaces

I’d move the cones if there isn’t anywhere else nearby to park. Sod parking streets away. I’d actually be ok with him blocking a space for loading/unloading if it was occasional and he had the curtesy to tell the neighbours and also to be quick about it. It absolutely sounds like he’s taking the piss.
