I would apply, but don't think would do too well on the points system [-(

Are they saying that as a statement of the law? Surely plate can be sold by the deceased's estate. To require it to be surrendered to the council on death illegal?

Surely illegal to prevent its sale/transfer?

I agree.

The plate is attached to a vehicle, and that vehicle can be passed on to anyone.

Anyone can add their loved ones to their vehicle license, then the council can't do anything should death occur.

Plate does not become part of deceased estate as to transfer plate to a new proprietor the existing proprietor has to sign the transfer papers,he/she cannot do this if they are dead.
It is vitally important that people take heed of this and always have at least one family member on the license as a part proprietor.

My wife is joint proprietor on mine. Should I fall off the perch she then has a plated vehicle to sell on.

You would have to be pretty stupid not to.

our council changes your plate number when you change vehicle and insists that the plate is theirs but there would be no point selling the plate as we are unrestricted.

You can of course sell the vehicle and pay a nice hefty fee for transferring the plate to a new owner

The plate may be theirs but the license is not that is why you can renew it every year.
