Bournemouth Borough Council is responsible for removing abandoned vehicles from the roads and highways around the town.
Abandoned vehicles are expensive to remove, have a negative impact on the environment, look unsightly and can lower the quality of life in neighbourhoods. They can be the result of, or lead to crime, take up valuable parking spaces and can quickly become dangerous when vandalised or filled with hazardous waste.
Before you report an abandoned vehicle please check to see if you think the vehicle really is abandoned to avoid wasting valuable Council time. Check the following:
Unfortunately, there is no one definitive reason why people abandon vehicles. In fact, there are a wide variety of reasons why vehicles are abandoned including:
The increase in MOT failure rate, as some older vehicles cannot meet the standard required on
Personal circumstances of the owner e.g. death of the owner, owner suffering ill health,
owner in prison, owner moved away from the area.
Please tell us the exact location of the vehicle, the registration number, the make, model and colour, and if you know it, the date or approximate date of when it was abandoned and the expiry date of any tax displayed.
By working together we can keep Bournemouth a Cleaner, Safer, Greener place to live and visit
