Can I prevent the council from putting lines outside my house?

I have lived at my house for 22 years and never had a line outside my house. Around 2012 the council painted one and I complained and it was removed. Now they are trying to do it again. What can I do?

If you have a dropped kerb entrance then you have access to your garage and the yellow line merely places restrictions on vehicles parking in the street outside your house. You don't own the street.
