Our officer will attempt to contact the owner to either remove it or claim it. If the owner cannot be traced the vehicle may be towed away for a short period of storage before disposal. If the owner then wishes to recover the vehicle from the council's abandoned vehicle contractor they will have to pay the collection and storage charges.
Vehicles which are burnt out or in a dangerously damaged condition may be removed immediately without prior notice to the owner.
Vehicles inspected and not considered abandoned will not normally be considered for re-inspection until they have been unmoved for at least three months from the date of the report.
