Boxted fencing Colchester. They make all the panels and posts so no middle man. Just used them again on our 4th property. Won't use anyone else. You may have to wait a while but they are better and more competitively priced than anyone else we contacted.

We can thoroughly recommend Richard James 07799205836/01473272086. He has recently replaced a fence for us. He was reliable,tidy and very reasonable. Actually he was recommended to us on Streetlife.

I think the trouble with the parking shaming pages on Facebook is they have little chance of being seen by the perpetrators, and even if they saw them they probably wouldn't care. Ring the council, they are pretty proactive if they know of a problem.
