A Crayford man has slammed parking signs outside his house as worthy of "Nazi Germany".
Noel Phillips, 45, and many of his neighbours are infuriated by the ‘No Parking’ notices which cropped up around his property.
The signs have also angered his neighbours in Ridge Way with one person attempting to take them down in the dead of night.
Mr Phillips told News Shopper he is worried the notices, erected by housing association London and Quadrant (L&Q), could devalue the house prices in the road.
The IT consultant and musician said: "It’s just like Nazi Germany.
"They are very ugly signs and we are worried about properties being devalued.
"Someone tried to take one of the signs down in the dead of night but wasn’t able to because they couldn’t get the screws out.
"These guys are cowboys. It's litter - just rubbish nailed to a telegraph pole.
"L&Q have no resource legally and it just looks wrong."
Mr Phillips revealed one furious resident took matters into their own hands last week.
He said: "Someone tried to take one of the signs down in the dead of night but wasn’t able to because they couldn’t get the screws out.
"I said to the L&Q representative who visited recently he wouldn’t want these signs in his street and he agreed."
An L&Q spokesman admitted the signs were not legally enforceable.
He said: "These signs were designed to help people living in the nearby houses who weren’t able to park outside their homes, and were put up by their landlord L&Q who owns the land.
"While such signs don’t carry legal sanctions we are hoping they will be effective and will keep the situation under review."
