Unregulated Car Wash Sites

EDM number 941 in 2007-08, proposed by Bob Russell on 18/02/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Environmental protection, Service industries and Water.

That this House recognises the important role that the car wash industry plays in the UK, contributing more than £819 million to the economy and investing in efficient and environmentally friendly equipment; is concerned that this success is threatened by the growth of hand car wash operators who operate outside regulation, in particular the planning and environmental legislation put in place to protect water quality and to prevent pollution of ground and surface water; and calls on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Department for Communities and Local Government, the Environment Agency and local authorities to take action to deal with illegal practices arising from unregulated car washes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 33 MPs.
