Abandoned and Impounded Vehicles

If a vehicle has been parked in your street for a few days and you don't know who the owner is, Council can investigate your concern.

Please note: If you know who owns the vehicle or it is registered to someone locally, the vehicle is not deemed to be abandoned.

To begin the investigative process, Council officers require you to provide the following information:

  • Registration number of the vehicle
  • Model make and colour
  • Approximate length of time vehicle has been parked
  • Location of the vehicle (vicinity to a landmark (house number, building, park/reserve))

If the vehicle is parked illegally, a City of Playford inspector will attend the location and may issue a parking expiation.

If you believe the vehicle is parked in such a way that it creates a hazard or danger to other road users this should be reported to Police on 131 444.

Unregistered vehicles may be reported to Police on 131 444.

If you wish to report a vehicle that may have been abandoned, or if you believe your vehicle has been removed, please contact the City of Playford on 8256 0333.
