The Leader AGREED:
1. To utilise the powers afforded to Buckinghamshire Council to remove vehicles where legislation permits and introduce a Vehicle Removal Policy covering the following scenarios:
1.1. Persistent evaders. These are motorists who receive numerous penalty charge notice (PCNs) and where payment for the charge cannot be collected because either;
· The owner/keeper cannot be located
· The debt has escalated to the Enforcement Agents (EAs) and the Warrant of Control has expired before the debt has been successfully recovered.
1.2. Vehicles parked causing an obstruction or danger on the highway. This includes, but is not limited to, vehicles parked preventing expeditious flow of traffic, and/or parked in contravention of an area suspended to facilitate highways works.
