Abandoned Cars

Vehicles that have been parked on a public street or public area and which have not moved for a long time may be considered abandoned.

Council may consider a vehicle to be abandoned if it:

  • is unregistered; or
  • is registered but has not been moved for a period of at least 2 months; or
  • if it is deemed to be not roadworthy by NSW Police or Transport NSW; and
  • it is parked on a public street or in a public place.

To report an abandoned vehicle, please contact us with the following details:

  • vehicle registration number (if known),
  • street and street number if possible,
  • type of vehicle (for example, sedan, ute or wagon),
  • description of the vehicle (colour, make and model),
  • any photographs.

When an abandoned vehicle creates a traffic hazard, Council officers can take action to remove the vehicle immediately.

You can contact Council to report an issue on T: 02 60360100 or lodge an online customer request form.
