After reading the Parish Council extracts in the June Reeve’s Tale the item cars ‘For Sale’ on the A1067, I phoned both the Highways Department and Dereham Police regarding the legality of this practice, of which I am guilty.
I was informed by both that, as long as the vehicle was taxed and MOT’d and not causing an obstruction, there would be no cause for concern, so long as you were a private seller,   Please assure other residents that should they wish to advertise a vehicle for sale in this way, they will not be breaking the law.

The Bawdeswell Parish Clerk has received this letter from Norfolk County Council Highways Department:
Bawdeswell – Vehicles for Sale on the Highway.  (Usually refers to  all Highway land, verges etc., as I once found out to my cost.  Ed.)
The Legal position is as follows:-
The standing of vehicles on the public highway unless reasonably incidental to the public’s right to pass and re-pass or for some other lawful reason, is an obstruction and an offence.
Such vehicles are a public nuisance and a trespass on the highway.
The County Council has statutory duties to assert and protect the rights of the public to the highway.
The Council has a common law right to clear obstructions and to deal with trespasses to the highway.  This position is enforced for persistent offenders or where there is an obvious obstruction but not normally in a ‘one off’ situation.
