(This note is not part of the Regulations
These Regulations amend the Removal and Disposal of Vehicle Regulations 1986. These amendments reflect amendments made to section 99 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 by section 55 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. They extend the power of constables in England to require the removal of vehicles from land other than a public road. The amendments also make further provision for the case where a vehicle may be removed from land other than such a road.
1984 c. 27; section 99 was amended by section 15(1) and (2) of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 (c.16) and section 55 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (c.9). There are other amendments to section 99 but none are relevant to these Regulations. The functions of a Minister of the Crown, so far as exercisable in relation to Wales, were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales by articles 2 and 3 of, and Schedule 1 to, the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 2004 ( S.I. 2004/3044).
