This section provides guidance on abandoned cars, obstructive parking and reckless driving.
If you have noticed a vehicle that you believe to be abandoned, start by speaking to your neighbours to see if they know who owns the car.
If you have made enquiries and no-one knows, make a note of the registration number and make of the car.
If the vehicle is in one of our car parks, please complete our Contact form or email us and attach a photo if it is possible. Once we receive your report, we will make contact with the DVLA to see if there is a registered keeper. If there is, we will make contact with them.
If not, we will make arrangements to get the vehicle removed. This process can take up to 10 weeks.
If the vehicle is on a public road, please contact the local authority.
If you believe the vehicle is stolen, please contact the Police on 101 who will attend and recover the vehicle if it is stolen.

If you know the people involved and you feel safe to do so talk to them about the issue, they may not know they are causing a nuisance.
You can report the incident to the Police and once you have reported it to the Police, please contact us by phone or via our online ASB reporting form so we can work with the Police and agree the next steps.
