  • Council said could not do anything unless vehicles have bits missing. Did contact DVLA re untaxed vehicles but nothing been done. Still at least 5 untaxed cars/vans there so presume it must be OK to store cars there

  • Someone on Lane Close is using this car park as a space to store cars which are being maintained and as such is running a business from this land. I have approached people doing work on these cars a number of times and been met with aggression and abuse. With the work that is going on in Harts Close which has removed the car park from there (and created a horrendous parking situation), some people from Harts Close are having to use this space to park. I have been blocked in a few times from recovery vehicles being parked there. Something needs to be done.

  • Wondered if this is classed as private land as at least 4 vehicles either with no tax or NOT or with SORN but I have been told in past that if SORN must be off public road which I believed this to be.
