A MONTH-LONG campaign of action on cars left for sale on council-owned land has just ended - and some 60 notices have been issued.

The campaign, which was carried out by the council throughout June, follows reports from residents across the borough and local ward councillors.

There's been a history of complaints regarding cars parked up for sale and left unattended, as the sites they choose to occupy are often far from ideal.

Cars often block the line of site for other road users and some are left on footpaths, preventing safe pedestrian access.

There's also the unwanted effect of drivers slowing down to look at the details of these cars - a potential hazard for road users and pedestrians.

"We will continue to monitor this issue and take action where required," said Cllr Roy Miller. "Owners selling cars in this way should expect prompt action by the council’s enforcement team."
