Re: Large White vans in New Street Bengeo

A Parliamentary briefing document doesn't replace an Act of Parliament. Check out S. 137 of the Highways Act 1980 or for further consideration S.148(c) of the same act. The fact is that the legislation does exist, but neither the Police or local authorities can be bothered to enforce it. However, if...

Re: Large White vans in New Street Bengeo

Ok, you dismiss an Act of Parliament as "Rubbish". Even the link you have posted includes the offence as defined under S.137 of the Highways Act 1980.

Re: Large White vans in New Street Bengeo

Technically all vehicles parked on a highway are causing an obstruction. The common law definition of a Highway states that 'A highway is a way over which there exists a public right of passage, that is to say a right for all Her Majesty's subjects at all seasons of the year freely and at their will...

Re: Sofa Disposal

I know that East Herts Council will collect and dispose of certain items (for a fee) but not sure if sofas are amongst them. Worth giving them a call. Or put in the front garden with a price tag on it. Someone will nick it.

I can positively state without the need for google that not all bat...
