--Govanus (talk) 21:48, 28 October 2014 (UTC)Re: Manoeuvring forecourt I did consider that but the wiki seems to want to keep that specific tag for open carparks. I also wondered if people would confuse it for road for parking along wich leagaly it isn't and veichals can often be towed without much taceing of the owner first. I also lookeed a turning circles and turning heads but they didn't really fit well with this kind of roadspace I also thought about calling a yard of some kind as it is more plzaish than a road but a straight yard would imply you could put stuff incleding vehicals anywhere but this kind of space is genrally kept clear like a turning head to alow for the monuvers.
So after concluding that this feature was a custom blend of just about all of the above whilst not specificly being any of them I gave it the new tag.
