Hate losing parking place (4)


I believe the answer is:


'place' is the definition.
(I know that site is a type of place)

'hate losing parking' is the wordplay.
'hate' becomes 'spite' (spite is a kind of hate).
'losing' is a deletion indicator.
'parking' becomes 'p' (abbreviation on road signs).
'spite' with 'p' removed is 'SITE'.

(Other definitions for site that I've seen before include "Somewhere to build, perhaps" , "Spot, location" , "Whereabouts" , "Locale" , "Ties into building location" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
