I can remember one TOH episode where the couple, who lived in Nantucket (I think) wanted off street parking. They wanted to put an entrance next to their neighbor's home which would have led to their back yard. Their architect drew up a plan which would have made the entrance look like a carriage house entry but the historic commission shot it down.

David, you are certainly right that a person chooses to live in such a place and therefore should know beforehand what is expected, but it seems, based on my self-acknowledged limited experience, that some people just like having the power to say "no".
