Vehicle Removal Policy

Last updated: 1 February 2021

Scope of the Vehicle Removal Policy

This Policy is designed to deal with persistent evaders, vehicles parked in breach of the Blue Badge Scheme Regulations, vehicles using fraudulent parking devices, and vehicles that are parking dangerously or causing an obstruction on the public highway. The Policy applies within the boundaries of the Buckinghamshire County, including the adopted public highway and any land owned by the council.

For the purposes of this Policy, the meaning of “Road” shall be the definition as contained in the Road Traffic Regulation Act (RTRA) 1984 and Traffic Management Act (TMA) 2004.

All TMA 2004 removals can attract an appeal from the owner/keeper; these will be treated in the same manner as a PCN appeal. If successful in appeal, all money paid in respect of the removal and storage of the vehicle will be reimbursed.

Vehicle compound hours are dictated by the vehicle removal contractor. The hours of operation can be found on the council website.
