ABANDONED VEHICLES

This page lists all the vehicles reported to the Council (abandoned), and DVLA (out of date tax disc).  We hope to update regularly with details of how the issue is being resolved.  Please add a comment or email us at myattsfieldparking@gmail.com if you would like to add a vehicle to the list.

Here are the vehicles we have reported as of the 7th August.  The council has 10 days to send us a response:

Vehicles spotted as of the 7th August which conform to Lambeth's definition of abandoned vehicles or are in violation of the DVLA's codes.
Vehicles spotted as of the 7th August which conform to Lambeth’s definition of abandoned vehicles or are in violation of the DVLA’s codes.

Here is how the process works:

SB03 HYS White Mercedes van with flat tyre on Calais St, hasn’t moved in many months and has an out of date tax disc.

A quick check on the DVLA website reveals both the tax and MOT are out of date

    1. We have asked Lambeth for their policy on caravans MANY times but they are yet to respond. The law is a bit vague, though most councils have a policy to say if the caravan is not taxed and lit at night then it is illegally parked on a public highway and can be removed. Lambeth seems to have no such published policy and they are therefore mute on the subject. We have been told that both the Inglis and Cormont caravans are owned by residents so the Council may be unwilling to intervene. We are continuing to press.
