Abandoned Vehicle Abandoned vehicles

Council can remove and impound any unregistered or derelict or abandoned vehicle that is parked on a road or on Council land. These vehicles can be impounded immediately, although in most situations a notice will be attached to the vehicle giving the owner either 48 hours or seven days to remove the vehicle from the road.

Registered vehicles that have been damaged and are deemed dangerous may also be impounded.
