Unregistered truck in my driveway- my private house. Why can't I keep it?

The Cockburn council has told me I have 1 month to get rid of this truck that I bought to fix up, and eventually use as a travelling home.
I have been told, as it's not registered, that I have to get rid of it.

I have a very long driveway and a tidy yard, it is not an eyesore at all. In fact it can barely be seen!

I'm devastated.. I have put so much work into this beautiful old girl, and cannot understand how the council has such ownership over my life/property!

I REALLY need help, any advice would be hugely appreciated.

Cheers,

Cairo

Ask the council under what law they are issuing the demand.

BTW, having pot plants and matting around the truck make it look like it is a permanent feature, not a renovation project.
