Abandoned vehicles

Abandoned car

Abandoned vehicles can cause a public nuisance, are an eyesore and can be a danger to other road users. Find out who to report abandoned vehicles to.


If you have spotted an abandoned vehicle please report it to the district/borough council who cover the area where it is.

The costs of removal, storage and final disposal are shared between the district/borough council and us.

The vehicle will be removed if it is causing a public nuisance, is untaxed or if it has not been removed by the owner after a notice of removal has been placed on the vehicle.

The owner has a certain amount of time to remove the vehicle once the notice has been given.

Untaxed vehicles on the public highway can also be reported online.
