A RETIRED doctor from Trinity has spoken about his disappointment after two cars and a pile of building rubble were dumped near a north coast beauty spot.

John Barrie Howell said that the vehicles and rubble suddenly appeared around four weeks ago in the Jardin d’Olivet car park, near Bouley Bay.

‘It is just not right, it is awful. It is a beautiful part of the Island. One of the vehicles is UK-registered and the other one is Jersey-registered but does not have a window insurance disc, so I do not think it is insured.

‘I have spoken to the States police but they say as it is on private land it is quite difficult to deal with.’

According to the UK DVLA, despite appearing to be in good condition, the UK-registered Suzuki’s MOT expired in November 2017 and its vehicle tax ran out in October 2017.

Dr Barrie Howell, who lives near the car park, added: ‘We have brilliant facilities at La Collette and Bellozanne so I do not understand why some people do not use them. It is so lazy and anti-social and they just do not have to do it – it is upsetting, really.’

Greater powers were given to private landowners in June after the States agreed to pass a new law.

According to the new legislation, provided that the landowner has followed processes set out in the law – including demonstrating that they have made every effort to contact the owner and that they have worked alongside parish authorities to resolve the issue – they may, using a States-approved operator, have the offending vehicle towed away.

It is understood that the matter is being looked into by the parish.

Two men were fined in the Magistrate’s Court last month after being caught fly-tipping waste.
