Council can investigate reports of vehicles (including boats and trailers) appear to have been abandoned by their owner or are unregistered and parked in a public place. However, vehicles on private property are managed by the land owner/occupier.
It is illegal to have an unregistered vehicle on a road or road-related area. Council officers, however are not authorise to deal with matters concerning the registration status of vehicles and these concerns should be raised with Police.
If the owner of a vehicle comes forward and claims ownership, the vehicle is no longer considered 'abandoned'.
Council is then unable to remove the vehicle, except in cases where it is poses a danger to pedesitrians and other road users.
For more information, or to report an abandoned vehicle, contact our Customer Service Centre on 9707 9000.
