Abandoned Vehicles

We have powers to deal with vehicles that have been abandoned or burnt out. The law says that any vehicle abandoned on public land, such as streets or open spaces, can be removed within 24 hours if it poses a risk e.g. is dangerous.

If you suspect that a vehicle may have been abandoned, contact us by: 

  • reporting the matter using the online form
  • telephone the adandoned vehicles helpline on 03451 55 00 22.


Abandoned vehicles which are clearly in an unroadworthy, dilapidated condition, will be destroyed shortly after removal.
