A PENSIONER ended up in court after complaints about the number of cars stored outside his Killamarsh home.

The council was informed in 2009 that nine vehicles were stored on the front garden of Donald Welton’s two-bedroom bungalow in a cul-de-sac in Rose Way. “An enforcement officer wrote to him saying the number exceeded what could reasonably be kept,” prosecutor Naomi Smith told Chesterfield magistrates. But by this January there were still six.

Welton admitted breaching an enforcement notice and was given a two-year conditional discharge, with £586 costs. He claimed there were never nine cars, only ever six and two were for his disabled wife. “It’s four now,” he added.
