Reporting parking problems and abandoned vehicles
Regulation and enforcement of on-street parking restrictions, public car parks and controlled parking zone permits is the responsibility of your local council.
For parking obstruction where vehicle access is inhibited, that is, the road is blocked or otherwise impassable due to the way the vehicle has been parked; or you are unable to exit your driveway on to the road, the police may be able to make efforts to contact the registered keeper and attend if necessary and consider removing the offending vehicle. For the police to use these powers there must be an obstruction which makes it impassable. If you are able to pass by the vehicle, even with difficulty, then the road, footpath or driveway is not actually physically blocked and the police will not attend.
Vehicles parked in a dangerous position where its position could cause injury to someone using the road (e.g. parking on a blind bend or on a humpback bridge) are matters for the police and you should call 101 or report online.
Abandoned vehicles, and their recovery, that do not cause obstruction should be reported to your local council.
