Re: Abandoned car preventing installation

In reply to a post by MCM:
Incorrect. The two abandoned cars are in spaces owned by residents and thus preventing the owners from parking their cars. This makes no difference whatsoever. We are legally not allowed to move the vehicles which has to be done via the local authority.
If it was my parking space I would get the owners details from DVLA and issue an invoice for parking in my space or storage fee £50.00 per day , if no response then i would sue them in the small claims court , if that failed and i had the money to spare i would escalate to high court enforcement
Or the car would mysteriously vanish to a scrap yard, and i would know nothing about it

After a couple of weeks of getting nowhere "legally" I would be out there with a tow rope to drag it just far enough to be out of the way, on a suitably dark night.

I'd take photos of it's position and condition first ofc.

Alternatively, tell the police you saw kids trying to set fire to it and are concerned about safety.

Looks like the road is privately owned by a housing association, which I guess complicates things. Fortunately Virgin have agreed to try and get it moved. By which they mean they will talk to the land owners.

But move it where? Maybe leave it on a public road?

I think wolves meant the OP move the vehicle just a few metres to allow access to VM manhole.

Apple computers, but if I put Apples since 1979 it may look like I eat only apples.... wink

OK thanks for the clarification. I did wonder because the Apple Macintosh didn't appear until 1984 although development of it did start in about 1979. Thought for a minute you might have been one of the developers smile

Hello, If a vehicle is sorned it CANNOT be any where other than on private property (for the pedants, yes - it can be driven to or from an arranged MOT test) . If this vehicle is on a place that is NOT private, then I suggest you (or Virgin) get back onto the local council or the DVLA - and demand its removal as it is unlicenced, and is subject to local council regulation and police powers - S:165, where a vehicle seen in violation of any number of road contraventions, can be seized: this is assuming that the vehicle is on the public highway which - unfortunately - you didn't say was or wasn't the case. Cheers, Les.
