A long-running stoush between the Invercargill City Council and a man who runs a car sales business had another day in the Environment Court last week.

The council was seeking an enforcement order against Paul van der Linde, who has sold cars from outside his property on Pomona St, south Invercargill, for 12 years.

He was first prosecuted in 2007 and told to remove any professional advertising from the cars. He was allowed to sell a maximum of four cars from the site - he had wanted to be able to sell up to seven.

A decision by Judge Jeff Smith is expected this week.
