When vehicles are advertised for sale on the verge or highway

Under the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 it is illegal for a business to advertise two or more vehicles for sale on the street or in lay-bys within 500 metres of each other.  If you believe that a business is selling two or more vehicles within this distance please contact us using the details below.  On conviction the business may be fined up to £2,500.

It is not illegal for an individual to advertise their own car for sale on the public highway. 

Where any vehicle is causing a complete obstruction please contact the Police on their non-emergency number, 101.  Please note, it is not illegal for your driveway to be blocked if it is empty.
