Hi, why have you closed the previous report- ref 3641154? The problem has not been solved as the issue will continue to occur and this is not just a fly tipping issue as it is a safety issue with vehicles being set on fire right behind my property not only causing a fire hazard to my house, toxic air and danger of explosion. Please put a camera in the area or a gate further out onto the pavement so people cannot abandon their vehicles here as it hidden behind our garden wall.
Please accept this response as acknowledgement that it has been received. All enquiries relating to abandoned/untaxed vehicles will be investigated fully. The Local Authority can take Enforcement action on a vehicle parked on a public road if its tax has expired for more than 2 calendar months and 1 day. The Local Authority has no powers to remove vehicles with no insurance or MOT, this is a Police matter and can be reported to https://www.police.uk/ pu/ contact-the-police/ . If the land on which the abandoned vehicle is located is occupied, the local authority must give the occupier a minimum of 7 days and if on private land 15 days’ notice is required to confirm that they propose to remove the vehicle. The local authority is not entitled to remove the vehicle if the occupier objects to the proposal.
