Vehicle Removal Policy

Last updated: 1 February 2021

Costs associated with vehicle removal

The associated costs for vehicle removal, storage and or disposal of vehicles removed for parking contraventions under Traffic Management Act 2004; are prescribed by the Civil Enforcement of Parking Contraventions (Guidelines on Levels of Charges) (England) Order 2007 (SI 2007/3487).

Costs include:

  • £105 for vehicle removal
  • £12 per day vehicle storage or each day or part day during which the vehicle is impounded
  • £50 vehicle disposal

In addition to the prescribed sums and charges, the owner/keeper will be required to pay the amount payable for the PCN issued to that vehicle on the date the vehicle was removed.

All vehicle removals can attract an appeal from the owner or keeper of the vehicle. These appeals are to be treated the same as a PCN appeal, SI 2007/3482. If an appeal is successful, all monies paid in respect of the removal and storage of the vehicle will be reimbursed in full.
