Nuisance vehicles

 The Clean Neighbourhoods & Environment Act 2005 sets out two specific ‘nuisance vehicles’ offences.  These are: 

  1. Leaving 2 or more motor vehicles parked within 500m of each other, on a road/roads where they are advertised for sale as part of a business.
  2. Repairing a motor vehicle on the road for business or gain, or repairing a motor vehicle on the road which causes annoyance to people. The exception to this is if the vehicle is being repaired within 72 hours of an accident/breakdown and repairs on the road are necessary.

The Environmental Protection Team will investigate whether reports of nuisance vehicles meet the above criteria and decide if an offence is being committed. 

We are unable to act on reports of untaxed vehicles or vehicles parked inconsiderately.
