The Gloucester Board of Supervisors voted unanimously at its Sept. 6 meeting to amend the county ordinance regarding inoperable motor vehicles on property zoned for residential or commercial uses.
The amended ordinance clarifies the definition of “inoperable motor vehicle,” and added the definition for “shielded or screened from view.”
County Attorney Ted Wilmot said the ordinance lists an “inoperable motor vehicle” as any vehicle that falls under the category of not being in operating condition, any motor vehicle which for a period of 60 days or longer, has been partially or totally disassembled or displays neither a valid license plate nor inspection decal.
The ordinance allows for one inoperable vehicle to be on property listed for residential or commercial use, provided it is shielded or screened from view. A car cover is adequate for shielding an inoperable motor vehicle. Other inoperable vehicles are allowed on the property so long as they are in an enclosed space.
