The owner of a DAF breakdown recovery truck has been ordered to pay £2,075 after he refused to move the vehicle which had been left across four residential spaces for a prolonged period of time.
Michael Woods pleaded guilty to failing to comply with the Community Protection Notice.
Boston Magistrates Court was told that there was evidence that the vehicle had remained in situ for a number of years, as weeds had grown around and under the vehicle.
Councillor, Michael Cooper, leader of Boston Council, said: “We take these kind of breaches very seriously, this inappropriate behaviour cannot be allowed.
“Causing distress to people’s neighbours will not be tolerated.”
Community Protection Notice
Woods was fined £750 for failing to comply with the Community Protection Notice and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £75 and costs of £1,250.
He was made the subject of a Criminal Behaviour Order which ordered him to remove his truck from Porcher Way and park it in an appropriate commercial unit, or industrial yard.
It also states that he must ensure that any vehicles parked outside the residential property in Porcher Way, or any residential street, are for private and domestic use, or parked for no longer than 48 hours if a vehicle is associated with the business.
