The cost to remove cars sits at £540
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.
