The cost to re­move cars sits at £540

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

In Au­gust this year the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph re­ported that Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil would foot the bill for the site to be cleared of the burnt out cars and other waste which had been dumped there. It would nor­mally cost a landowner £60 to re­move one ve­hi­cle from pri­vate land, if they con­tacted the city coun­cil to carry out the job - mean­ing it would cost £540 to re­move all the cars dumped there at the time. A coun­cil spokesman said it would be pay­ing for the clear­ance, due to ‘ex­cep­tional cir­cum­stances’ and said it would be work­ing with the landowner to pro­vide a per­ma­nent so­lu­tion to pre­vent it hap­pen­ing again. A week af­ter the nine cars were re­moved, three more wrecked cars ap­peared in their place. More cars were seen on the field in Novem­ber - and piles of gas cylin­ders and fire ex­tin­guish­ers were also spot­ted.
