    This might be slightly off topic but:

    a) Is it legal to park on the pavement both during the day and overnight?
    b ) Even when by doing so, you are blocking access to a drive?

    THERE IS NOTHING IN LAW THAT SAYS YOU HAVE AN AUTOMATIC RIGHT TO PARK OUTSIDE YOUR OWN HOUSE unless it is in your own private drive . You can park outside it as long as you don't cause serious obstruction to others. If it doesn't obstruct pedestrians, that's fine, but if a wheelchair has to go into the road into traffic then that's not acceptable

    You cant block access. The owner to the property has a right of access to their drive.

    A : it follows basically yellow lines rule, so if its got a painted yellow line, you can't park there at all, whether this be on the pavement or road. No lines, park how you see responsible, be considerate.

    b: Be nice, I'd avoid parking at someones drive as its blocking them access.

    You can block access to a drive with a drop kerb legally, so long as there isn't a car on the drive. E.g. if your neighbour has their car on the drive, you can't block them in. If they don't, you can park there even if it is selfish and an inconveinience for them. Parking on any pavement is technically illegal but rarely enforced.
