Abandoned vehicles - Penalties and charges

Penalties and charges

Once ownership of an abandoned vehicle has been confirmed the Council will contact the registered owner to request that the vehicle is removed. If the vehicle has not been removed by the date specified, the Council will arrange for the vehicle to be removed.

This is likely to incur expenses for which the registered owner will be liable. There is currently a charge of £20 per day storage fees and an abandonment fee charge of £150. In addition to this, should the vehicle be disposed of there will be an additional £150 charge to the above and we reserve the right to claim for any administration costs incurred in the removal of the vehicle.

Under Government legislation the maximum penalty is currently £2500 and / or 3 months imprisonment.
