So there are nominally 6 spaces for cars behind my flat. There's two spaces in front of the other set of flats (explicitly reserved for those flats), three under the viaduct, and a final space to one side.
There's also four flats in the building I'm in, and two in the other building, so in theory that all adds up and everyone gets one space. With me so far?
Well, I just looked out the window and there are now 7 cars and a motorbike (occupying one of the reserved spaces) in that area. While you can theoretically get one extra car in without completely blocking someone else, two doesn't work.
Perhaps I should suggest to my landlord that he should put up reservation signs for the un-reserved spaces, to match those that the other landlord has put up...
