Has anyone else noticed the rise in new houses which do not have parking in a driveway, but have a designated parking spot or two near the house?
Examples in Cork city I have seen are

And many of the 65 new houses in Crawford Gate beside Bessborough will not have a spot in the driveway either
as seen in page 11 of 12

For me the problem with that is people coming to visit won’t see your house number painted in the spot, or just not care. Then you come home and don’t know who is parked in your spot so can’t ask them to move!
I also noticed that most new houses that do have a spot in the drive had just one, and as the houses are tight together it means parking outside the front wall isn’t an option.
Those houses which are rented out would increase the problem, as would children when they grow up and have their own cars…
