Abandoned Vehicles – a blight on our streets

Monday, October 29, 2001

Meg Munn, Labour MP for Sheffield Heeley is taking very seriously the problem of abandoned vehicles on our city streets. She has been approached by a number of local residents lately, a resident who lives on Albert Road, Heeley has complained about a car that has been abandoned on his street for nearly a year. Another resident, this time from Batemoor Road, Jordanthorpe has had a car dumped outside their house for several months now and there are many more examples.

Last week, Monday 22nd October 2001, Meg spoke during an adjournment debate in the House of Commons on this topic. She drew attention to the way that people feel about their neighbourhood when cars are dumped, tyres let down and then often set on fire. Describing this as “a degradation for the neighbourhood”, Meg has vowed to do something about it.

Speaking from her constituency office in Sheffield City Centre, Meg said

“Abandoned cars are a blight on our streets, they are not only unpleasant to look at and take up valuable car parking space, but they are also a potential fire hazard and a danger to local children. I have been inundated with calls from residents for whom this is a big problem. A Government consultation is now under way to look at this subject and I want to be a part of finding a solution.

She went on to say

“Ironically, although the Liberal Democrats say in their own leaflets that abandoned cars are a “national issue” there wasn’t one single LibDem MP in the House for the debate!”
