We can remove abandoned vehicles if;
they have no valid tax disc; and
the owner is unknown; and
they are on council owned land
We issue enforcement notices before removing vehicles, unless it is the police who have asked us to remove it.
Where we cannot help;
if a vehicle has been abandoned on private property, please contact the landowner initially
if a vehicle has no tax disc, it is not necessarily abandoned. We have no power to remove untaxed vehicles that have not been abandoned. Please report any tax disc offences to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency
(DVLA) on 0800 032 5202
parked vehicles causing a danger
If a vehicle is badly parked, or has been in the same position for some time, it may not necessarily have been abandoned. We cannot act in such cases. If, however, it is dangerous, please report it to the police.
