People in Bourne and the Deepings can report vehicles abandoned on public land in their community.

A vehicle parked on the street must be taxed and insured and if it is aged three years or older it must have a valid MOT certificate.

Anyone can check if a vehicle is taxed or has a valid MOT by visiting https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-tax and entering the vehicle’s model and registration plate.

If the website states no tax or MOT is in place, use the above contact methods or subsequently contact the council’s Environmental Health team by emailing ehs@southkesteven.gov.uk

Coun Nick Craft, executive member for environment, said: “Abandoned vehicles can be an eyesore and we work with the DVLA to quickly identify the owner responsible.

“Removing abandoned vehicles has a large cost implication to us and whilst numbers of vehicles are relatively low in South Kesteven, where possible we will always pursue those found to have illegally left the vehicle with prosecution.

“If you suspect a vehicle is abandoned on land you own you are advised to check its owner details with the DVLA in order for you to contact the owner.”
