OVER a year since he made his initial complaint, a Buntingford resident has yet to see any action taken over a misleading sign near his home.
Malcolm Taylor alerted East Herts District Council to the sign in Station Road, Buntingford, last year.
Although double-yellow lines have been painted on the road there is also a time plateon a lamp-post saying that parking is allowed.
Mr Taylor said: "I have been trying to get this sign removed for over a year, it's very confusing for drivers.

"But I keep getting passed from department to department. I get the impression that if the council doesn't want to deal with a problem then it just passes the buck."
Having had no success contacting the council directly, Mr Taylor raised the matter at the Buntingford Community Voice meeting in January.

Councillor Alisdair McWilliams said he would take action to secure its removal, but since then nothing has been done, much to Mr Taylor's frustration.
"This is symptomatic of a wider problem with the council where issues fall between departments and nothing gets resolved," he said.
At the meeting of Buntingford Community Voice on Monday, district councillor John Warren promised to get the sign taken down.
"I can guarantee we'll get that notice taken down pretty quickly, even if we have to do it ourselves," he said.
