Abandoned, missing and nuisance vehicles

In this section you can report an abandoned or missing vehicle, request free removal of an unwanted vehicle, or let us know about a vehicle for sale on the public highway.

Abandoned vehicles

If you notice a vehicle that is damaged or burnt out or has no car tax, it i​s likely that the vehicle has been abandoned.

Missing vehicles

​Sometimes, we will remove a vehicle from a public road if it is untaxed or considered to be abandoned.

Free removal of unwanted vehicles

​We can remove old and unwanted vehicles free of charge for residents living in the borough. We do this to prevent people abandoning their cars elsewhere.

Selling a vehicle on a public road

Vehicles placed on the public highway for sale can become a nuisance to local residents and other road users.
