The Clean Neighbourhoods & Environment Act 2005 sets out two specific ‘nuisance vehicles’ offences. These are:
- 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.
- Repairing a motor vehicle on the road as part of a business/for gain, or repairing a motor vehicle on the road which is causing annoyance to people in the vicinity. The exception to this offence is if the vehicle is being repaired within 72 hours of an accident and breakdown and repairs on the road are necessary.
The Environmental Protection Team will investigate reports of nuisance vehicles meeting the above criteria to establish whether an offence is being committed. We are unable to act on reports of untaxed vehicles or vehicles parked inconsiderately.
