As part of the implementation of Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE), the County Council has previously requested from the Department for Transport the powers to remove, store and dispose of vehicles in contravention of parking restrictions and, although granted, it was agreed that the use of these powers would be subject to further approval from the Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure.
With CPE now more established and generally accepted in West Sussex, it is considered that vehicle removal could be a more appropriate tool for vehicles parked in contravention. It is considered appropriate to enact those powers as well as seek DVLA approval to devolve powers to the County Council to take enforcement action against individuals with untaxed vehicles.
