Abandoned Car for more than a year now

Reported in the Abandoned and Untaxed Vehicles category anonymously at 11:50, Friday 19 July 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

This car has been left parked outside my home for over a year now. The owner does not live here. Our gardener can not cut the bush it is blocking. It is dirty and an eye sore. Plus taking up our visitor parking space. It has been SORN but it is not parked privately. Please can this be removed. It doesn't seem like the owner wants the car as mentioned he doesn't live here what right does he have to abandon his car here.

  • Where expressed permission is given by the land owner or a managing agent acting on the freeholder's behalf Bromley Council will investigate nuisance vehicles on privately owned land.

    There is a non-refundable administration charge per vehicle for the investigation of vehicles on private land. The investigation includes site visits, all relevant DVLA checks and the serving of any required notices on the vehicle. If there is no interested party or the vehicle is not claimed by an owner and deemed to be abandoned the removal of the vehicle will be undertaken free of charge by Bromley.
