Report an abandoned vehicle
The Council is responsible for the inspection and removal of vehicles that are left abandoned on public land and roads.
Vehicles abandoned on private land
Abandoned vehicles on private land are the responsibility of the landowner. However, if they are causing a nuisance, the Council can serve the appropriate legal notice to have the vehicle removed.
We normally inspect and commence investigation of an abandoned vehicle within one working day of it being reported and, following investigations, remove it within one working day of the Council being satisfied of its abandonment.
Where the vehicle is abandoned on private land, we will serve the appropriate legal notice when we are satisfied of its abandonment and will remove it when we are legally permitted to do so.
