Disused and unwanted vehicles left in the environment are unsightly and affect the visual amenity of the area. In addition, components deteriorate and leaks, such as oil and battery acid, pollute the surroundings and can cause risk to the health and safety of people and animals. Abandoned vehicles also provide harbourage for pests like rats and mice which spread disease.
Officers of the Environmental Health Service may serve a statutory notice to require removal of an abandoned vehicle and this removal may be done in default and the registered keeper charged.
Vehicles must be taxed if on the road, and have a valid SORN notice if off road. If the vehicle is currently registered on a SORN it must be parked off the Public Highway.
If anyone wishes to report an abandoned vehicle or has any queries please contact us on 01595 745250 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
