How to stop motorcyclists parking your driveway?

Got a relative with a groundfloor flat in London.
He luckily also gets the driveway at the blocks entrance.
As it's a busy area he has placed a collapsible bollard to stop people parking there, but now he sometimes finds motorcyclists parking there.
Apart from a sign saying PRIVATE DO NOT PARK, what else could he do?
Warn them if they park there the motorcycle will be removed, take it away and charge them to get it back?
Any help welcomed.

Big sign, "Emergency Exit" keep free 24 hours a day.
Vehicles parked here will be towed at owners cost.

Should do the trick, otherwise s it is private ground, start clamping, a big chain will be sufficient.

If the opening allows how about a chain across the entrance ?, assuming he's the only user ?

I'd chain the rear wheel, let both tyres down, maybe get a birly mate so you can pick the bike up and move it. Only way these dip learn

Get the aforementioned mate to give them a hand to move it to some nearby yellow lines then someone else will deal with it.

Private land or not, only the police and councils (and the courts, on odd occasions) have the power to clamp. Too many cowboys led to the general "clamp what you like" policy being outlawed a few years ago now.

Perhaps a word with the owners of the bikes, I know if someone came and explained in a decent fashion I would listen and likely move, however if I found someone damaging my bike that would probably be the last thing they did,

I agree in some fashion, I wouldn't advise somebody to touch my bike.
However I never park in such a way that they have to.
I you park unconsidered, expect someone too be unconsidered with your vehicle.
