Report an abandoned vehicle

Council's power to remove vehicles alleged to be abandoned is very limited.

Registered vehicles will only be removed if it is demonstrated beyond doubt that ownership of the vehicle has been abandoned.  For a vehicle to be considered abandoned, we must observe that it has not moved for at least 60 days.

We do have authority to impound unregistered* vehicles that are left standing:

  • on a Council-controlled road
  • in a parking area provided by Council
  • on Council land.

* Please note: a vehicle not displaying a current registration does not necessarily mean the vehicle is not registered.

We have no authority to remove vehicles from private property.

If you think a vehicle has been abandoned please call Stonnington Parking Alliance on 9058 6600.
