Cllr Foley asked: “Is there a policy for dealing with the practice of car traders parking cars in residential areas, essentially using these areas as their car sales forecourt?

"This is creating nuisance parking for residents of the county. Could the Chief Executive give a statement on the matter?"

The Council replied: “Cars advertised for sale are not permitted to be parked on the public road. Under Section 71 of the Roads Act 1993, the Council can take action up to and including seizure of such vehicles.

"Any locations where this is happening should be notified to the Traffic Section.”
