Street Care and Cleaning

Maintenance and repair of public highways (including carriageway, pavements and highway verges) within the district of Wychavon lies with Worcestershire County Council Highways Department.  This also includes any deposits onto the highway, such as oil, mud, sand and gravel from whatever source, that is likely to cause a hazard to road users.  If you wish to report such hazards please access the County Council's Highways Maintenance web page.

We are responsible for the following services:

Abandoned Vehicles

Please check the following website to see if the vehicle has valid Tax/MOT or if it is SORN before reporting it as abandoned: https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-tax

A vehicle is unlikely to be abandoned if it has valid tax whilst on the highway, unless it has been subject to vandalism or is in very poor condition i.e. flat tyres, smashed windows or full of waste.  Also a vehicle for sale on the highway is not necessarily abandoned.

When reporting an abandoned vehicle, please include the following information:

  • Vehicle Registration
  • Vehicle make, model and colour
  • Vehicle Condition
  • State if the car is taxed
  • Location of the vehicle
  • We also find it useful to know when you first noticed the vehicle.

    If you would still like to report an abandoned vehicle on the highway or public open land please report on the link below.
