Abandoned Vehicles

Council Rangers can only impound vehicles on council land, roads and other lands under Council Control, not private land. 

If a vehicle is on council land and has been abandoned for more than three days or has been left in a dangerous manner, you can contact Council's Rangers on 02 6648 4000.

What you need to tell us:

  • Is it on Council land?
  • What is the location of the vehicle?
  • What is its registration number?
  • Can you tell us the make, model, colour?
  • How long has it been at the location?

Please provide as much information as you can about the vehicle including its registration number.

Abandoned motor vehicle removal requires a process which by law needs to be followed. Because of this, the process of removal can take time, but most abandoned vehicles are removed within 30 days of being reported.
