A caravan has parked opposite my home. About two months ago the guy who is renting XX XXXXXXXX XXXXX, bought a caravan and parked it on the road outside his rented house. This is a nice quiet area and we are horrified that a caravan has park here.
I thought it was against the Law. The council said if it were a council estate he would be able to move it, but because it is a private estate with mainly bungalows he can't.
My argument is that it is a council road (highway) so what is the difference. It would appear that he is running a business. He bought one caravan and repaired it on the roadside, outside his house and now he has bought another one to do the same with.
Both caravans were on the wrong side of the road so reflectors not seen and the steps are left in the middle of the road. The deeds that go with the property say you cannot have a caravan on your property or on the road.
The problem is that the Council and the police have shared control over caravans. Council say they can only help with abandoned caravans. Police say it is up to the council when dealing with the highway.
I've been in touch with the Estate Agent responsible for renting him the house but they say they have not been commissioned to manage it.
What am I to do - I do not want to live on a road where caravans are parked. My address is XXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX. See it on Google Earth.
This task is totally exhausting and I need help.
The Police Ref: P138752 the caravan owners car reg is XXXX XXX. Are there gas bottles in the caravan. He has cables running across the pavement, steps in the middle of the road and all sorts going on. He is making a living buying and selling caravans I think.
Please find a way of moving this caravan. If you want photos will upload them to you if possible.

The deeds of my home say that a caravan cannot park on the Estate where I live. The Police and the Council pass the responsibility to each other and no one wants to take control.
How do I get the caravan removed from my road. My neighbours and me do not want it parked here, especially as he is repairing them and selling them on - as a business.
