Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) has the power to remove a vehicle on the public highway, private roads and other land in the open air for a number of reasons if it is felt the vehicle is abandoned.
A vehicle which is considered abandoned on the public highway will be given up to 14 days notice. If the vehicle is not removed within this period, MVDC will remove and dispose of that vehicle and may charge the owner for any costs incurred.
If the owner of the vehicle contacts MVDC within the notice period, in most cases the vehicle is no longer classed as abandoned, therefore MVDC will not remove it.
When a vehicle is reported as abandoned to us we will conduct a number of checks before applying a removal notice. These checks include:
A check via the DVLA to establish whether the vehicle has up-to-date tax and MOT.
A visual assessment to see if the vehicle demonstrates the following:
Please note, a vehicle can still be classed as abandoned if it does not meet the above criteria.
