to park in the space and ignore his 'sign' not to?

We live in a very busy street, at our end there is 4 blocks of flats, each consisting 4 flats each so lots of cars.
There is a few driveways for the backs of the houses in the street infront of ours, so a lot of the street space (no allocated spaces or bays) is taken up by these and its often hard to get a space particularly after 5pm.
One of these houses don't have a driveway, they seem to have made their own version of one but instead of a parking space for a car they have a large shed. On the shed he has spray painted no parking, and has put a similar sign on his back gate, this whole 'area' is about two car spaces long and it irritates me especially when it rains and we have to park round the corner with two young DCs. The kerb isn't dropped at all so has he any right to do this? We've lived here around a year and so far I haven't seen anyone park in the spaces.

Park there and report him to the council.
Sounds like an entitled git.
I don't understand people getting so arsey about parking when they've chosen a house with no parking.
If it matters that much, buy a house with parking just like I want a garage so I buy houses with a garage.

I have similar near a local dog walk....a bright red 'resident parking only' sign, bought from amazon. I joyfully park (legally, I assure you) there and every time the home owner comes out. They never say anything, but seem to want to very badly 😂
One day I'm sure they will try and feed me a bullshit line about residents parking, but I've got my replies ready!

Nobody owns the road. There's a car parked right outside my house at the moment which means DP won't be able to park there when he gets home (we don't have a driveway).
It's annoying, but that's life - especially if you live in an area with flats or (like us) a road full of older houses that were built before many people had cars.
