Reporting an abandoned vehicle

An abandoned vehicle is a vehicle which doesn’t have a known owner. Issues with abandoned or illegally parked vehicles are dealt with by different agencies. Please read the information on the Gravesham Borough Council website to determine who you should contact and then follow their link to report an abandoned vehicle online:

Report a problem on a road or pavement to KCC Highways

Have you noticed a pothole? A dangerous pavement? A faulty street light? Here is our guide on how to report these issues directly to Kent County Council Highways Division.

You can report non-urgent issues online including:

  • street light faults
  • potholes
  • drainage
  • traffic signal faults
  • overgrown vegetation (including hedges and grass).

You can plot issues using a map or a non-map based address lookup. If you have any visual impairments or use a screen reader, we would recommend using the address lookup.

Report an issue using the following link:
