Our Community Safety Team deals with abandoned vehicles that are a nuisance or untaxed.
There is no legal definition for an abandoned vehicle but we'd consider a vehicle to be abandoned if it hasn't moved for a considerable time and it:
- is damaged or in a run-down state
- has no number plates
- contains waste
- attracts vandals
- has no registered keeper on the DVLA system
- has a registered keeper but they fail to respond to our correspondence
