Abandoned Vehicle

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

The van isn't road worthy, no tax, no mot. The tyre's are flat and it is being used to store produce. It has been parked for over 12 months and it is encouraging ASB as the windows have been smashed. Looking at the government website I understand you can help remove this vehicle from private land.

  • Dear sir/madam,

    I am police officer and passed by this vehicle today, 14/01/2021, and can confirm that it has not been dealt with since the previous update.

    It is not listed on PNC so appears to have no registered keeper. We spoke to someone who knows the owner and he informed us that it would be moved soon and that he would put a cover over it in the meantime.

    If this can be moved, that would be much appreciated, as it's full of work things and tools and has been left open and windows smashed, so that anyone could gain access and misuse it.

  • Thank you, this is welcome news although we are concerned that their isn't a deadline set for when the vehicle must be removed. To provide some background we have been advised it would be removed before but 24 months on it is still abandoned in our parking bays inviting ASB.

    Can you confirm what you would consider a reasonable amount of time should lapse before the Van is removed?

    Many Thanks
