A West End property owner wants vehicles parked without his permission off his land.

Walter Stevens, of Warwick, said that a number of vehicles are on his Sound View Road, Sandys, property without his consent.

Mr Stevens, 79, said at last count there were six vehicles parked on ground owned by him near Allen Temple. He said that the problem had become a “free for all”.

Mr Stevens added: “They shouldn’t be there. Even if I sold the property there would be problems because of all that stuff.”

He said the vehicles stored on his property have included jet skis, boats, motorbikes and other motor vehicles. Mr Stevens said the unauthorised parking had been a problem for about a year.

He said that he had tried to contact some of the vehicle owners with information provided by Government but had little success. Mr Stevens said that he would be willing to consider letting people use the land for parking. He explained “I can probably try and make some arrangement — even charge a fee for it.”

Mr Stevens said that he wanted the vehicles off his property.

He added: “If they don’t remove them this week, then I’ll probably put a levy on them and let a lawyer take care of it.”
