Tony Blair now at the centre of parking ban row

It means two residents’ parking bays outside Mr Blair’s house would be set aside for his exclusive use 24 hours a day. Parking bays on the opposite side of the road will also be converted to “Blair only” spaces, reports The Telegraph.

Martin Low, the Director of Transportation for the Westminster Council, has acknowledged receipt of this his letter where miffed neighbours have complained about being handed out temporary parking arrangements.

Many residents are known to be disgruntled at being unable to park near their homes when the square is full, having lost several bays to Blair and his bodyguards.

Should the proposals be approved, it would mean the loss of six “shared use” spaces, where members of the public can park using a pay and display machine, and a gain of three residents’ only spaces.

The proposed scheme would be paid for by the Home Office, which oversees Blair’s lifelong security arrangements.

Residents have until the end of the month to file their objections. (ANI)
