Reporting an abandoned vehicle
If you see a vehicle that you think has been abandoned you should report it to us.
We can then make the relevant checks to ascertain whether the vehicle has been stolen and establish who is the current keeper. Should our investigations confirm it is abandoned, we will remove it.
It you think a vehicle has been abandoned and plan to advise us, please provide as much information as possible, for example, registration number, colour, manufacturer, location etc. This will help us to locate the vehicle and take appropriate action.
If you wish, you can report an abandoned vehicle to us online.
Notification of nuisance vehicles by the general public is rapidly increasing and there is little or nothing the local authority can do about nuisance vehicles such as:
- Poorly parked vehicles
- Vehicles causing obstruction
- Neighbour disputes
- Residential parking disputes
- Vehicle breakdown
