Abandoned Vehicles - Reporting and Procedures

Untaxed vehicles abandoned on the public highway should be reported to the council.
 

How do I report an abandoned/dumped vehicle?

  • Either telephone 01423 500 600 or
  • Complete the online reporting form below
  • Please also see the Directgov website for information regarding untaxed vehicles.

What information do I need to give?

We need as much information about the vehicle as possible:
  • A detailed location of the vehicle - this can sometimes be difficult especially if the vehicle has been left on the side of a road or on a grass verge of a long or major road.
  • Please provide as much information as possible using landmarks and road numbers.
  • The vehicle type.
  • The vehicle colour.
  • The vehicle registration number.
  • The expiry date on the tax disc.
  • Whether the vehicle is burnt out or not.
