Contact us to report an abandoned vehicle

Abandoning a vehicle is a criminal offence and is dealt with by the Environmental Protection team.

North Norfolk District Council does not investigate vehicles which have a valid tax. The vehicle enquiry service can assist you in finding out if a vehicle is taxed.

Untaxed vehicles can be reported online by completing the form below, untaxed vehicles should also be reported to the DVLA. If a vehicle appears to have been left unattended for more than two weeks, unless it is burnt out, use this form to report it abandoned.

Please note - if the vehicle is parked on private land we can only accept reports from the landowner.
