Another classic example of "let's try to get away with it as it's so rampant" blassé attitude. This place has been pretty free of this recently and this came up. Think they may be trying to mitigate by parking half way on and off the kerb, but still wholly in cycle infra.

They may be trying to unload/pick up a digger, although didn't seem to be doing it at the time. And there's plenty of space in the development to do this.

Now, you CAN stop in cycle infra, but this is none of those conditions.

Highway Code Rule 240 (backed up in law)
You MUST NOT stop or park on a tram or cycle lane.

And the 1988 Road Traffic Act, section 21.
Any person who, without lawful authority, drives or parks a vehicle wholly or partly on a cycle track is guilty of an offence. Unless:

saving life, or extinguishing fire or meeting any other like emergency
maintaining of any structure or other work situated in the cycle track or its verges
undertaking work on water, sewerage electricity, gas, or telecomms network
