Sark tractor number cap revoked by Chief Pleas


The number of tractors and how to regulate them is under discussion by the Chief Pleas

A cap on the number of tractors in Sark has been revoked by Chief Pleas, the island's government.

It decided in 2007 that there should be a cap at 77 vehicles but this was never enforced.

Since then 15 more tractors have come to the island so any cap would involve some licences being revoked.

Instead the traffic committee has been tasked with coming back with rules governing how the vehicles can be used in the islands.

Islanders have to prove a business-based need for a tractor when applying for their annual licences.
