Quit parking in other people's parking spaces! If you didn't pay for it you shouldn't be freeloading.

I was curious about that too.  A nearby development has just imposed a penalty system for parking without a permit, but it's all enforced by a private company - is this legal?

I recall also that private clamping in Scotland was outlawed overnight.

That doesn't mean they might not want to use it at some point. Friends might visit, or they might have a car and keep it elsewhere for most of the week. It's incredibly annoying to arrive at your parking space to find someone with an exaggerated sense of entitlement has put their car there. If a house sits empty for a while do you think it would be okay to let yourself in and stay for a few days?

I can never understand why people bring up the "I have two kids" argument in these circumstances. It doesn't exempt you from the rules!

How do you know they don't pay council tax or rent? Are they squatters?
