Report an Abandoned Vehicle

We are able to investigate and remove abandoned vehicles that have been illegally left by their owners on council owned land and not been used for a period of time.

This does not include vehicles being stored or used by the owner on the public highway.

You should contact the police if a vehicle is:

  • Obstructing the public highway.
  • A hazard to road users.

Otherwise to report an abandoned vehicle please tell us:

  • Make and model of vehicle,
  • Registration,
  • Location,
  • Condition,
  • How long the vehicle has been there (if known).

It will also be necessary to provide your own contact details.

  • To avoid any damage to reported vehicles we do not place any form of notice on the vehicle until all proper checks have been processed. A seven days notice will then be placed on  the windscreen.
  • Removal of abandoned vehicles can take several weeks.
