Abandoned or unwanted vehicles

Report an abandoned vehicle

Our inspectors check all reports of abandoned or nuisance vehicles.

The inspectors note the condition of vehicles and only label those that are fit for destruction. 

This form will ask you to provide the:

  • Make, model and colour of the vehicle
  • The vehicle's registration
  • What street/estate it is parked on
  • Any other details such as landmarks, details of the nuisance

We only have power to remove vehicles parked on public streets and property. If a car has been abandoned or is causing a nuisance on private land, the owner/manager of the land will have to take full responsibility for removing and disposing of the vehicle.

If you think a vehicle doesn't have a valid tax disc, you can check on GOV.UK. A vehicle with valid road tax won't be considered abandoned, especially if it's in good condition.
