Report Abandoned Vehicles

We will remove abandoned vehicles from public land (including highways) and on private land with landowner’s consent.

Due to the current circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic we do not have access to the usual DVLA resources to allow us to tackle untaxed and abandoned vehicles.

Unfortunately we are not able to remove any vehicles unless there is an imminent risk situation in existence. All details of any complaints will be logged on our database and the cases actioned as soon as we are able. Thank you for your understanding at this time

How to report an abandoned vehicle

You can report an abandoned vehicle by filling in the online form. Before we can begin action to remove the vehicle we will need to make sure it is abandoned and will require the following details:

  • Your name, address and telephone number
  • The location of the vehicle
  • Whether the vehicle is on public or private land
  • The type of vehicle, the colour, and registration number (if available)
  • Whether the vehicle is currently taxed/untaxed. Vehicle tax discs are no longer required, please check if a vehicle is taxed online
  • Whether the vehicle is a wreck (for example burnt out, tyres deflated etc.)
  • How long the vehicle has been there
