Van has expired MOT is declared SORN on a public road.

Reported via mobile in the Abandoned vehicles category anonymously at 15:13, Saturday 10 September 2022

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

The van has been parked on the street for a number of years, and hasn’t been moved. It’s also SORN on a public road, and has an expired MOT.

It’s becoming very difficult to park in the area, with numerous neighbours being forced to park in bays that are not designated and accruing penalty notices which is costly. Given the state of the economy at the moment, with the cost of living at an all time rise it’s very unfair. The van also has an expired parking permit that haven’t been in use for 4 years, it’s criminal how this has been able to continue for so long.
