A woman who parks her car on Maple road has lashed out after receiving a note telling her to park elsewhere. She has called Bournville residents “unfriendly and intimidating.”

Kim Hudson, 54, of nearby Stirchley, regularly parks on Maple road as she works nearby.
On Wednesday 20 January she found a note on her car telling her not to park there anymore. The note said: “Busy parking area Dentist Please park elsewhere if you don’t live here.”
At first Mrs Hudson thought the note was written Bournville Village Dental Practice at the top of Maple road.
However, Chris Payne from the Practice told bournvillevillage.com: “That note has not been on placed by anyone from the dental practice and we would never presume to do so.
“I assume it is a local resident. Since Selly Oak hospital closed I have been unaware of any parking issues on Maple Rd.”
Mrs Hudson contacted local police via Twitter who reassured her that she was allowed to park there as there are no restrictions and that the note was not enforceable.
She has now decided to park her car further away after having had her car boxed in earlier that same week.
Mrs Hudson, who says she always tries to promote good community spirit, also took aim at the lack of punctuation in the note, declaring: “What Bournvillite can’t put a comma in?”
