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.

You will need

This form will ask you to provide:

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

Start report

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 or 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 is in good condition.

Remove your unwanted car

If your old car or van is ready for the scrap heap we can remove it, free of charge. You can also bring it to our depot Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm:
