Abandoned vehicles

Due to the current outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have had to make changes to Council services. As a result we are temporarily suspending the investigation of abandoned vehicles for the foreseeable future. We will resume investigations once normal services have resumed.

We can remove all vehicles abandoned on public land.

A vehicle may be classed as 'abandoned' if it:

  • has been parked and has not moved for two weeks or more
  • is untaxed
  • has flat tyres or removed wheels
  • has broken windows
  • is rusty or mouldy
  • has no number plates
  • has wires hanging from the dashboard
  • has an unusual or unsafe location

Report an abandoned vehicle

Please note: if you think a vehicle has been stolen or is obstructing a public highway, please report it to Telford Police on 0300 333 3000.
