Removal, storage, sale or disposal of vehicles and articles from Council assets other than roads

Under the Public Land and Council Assets Local Law 2014 (the Local Law) Council can confiscate or remove articles and vehicles left on Council land other than roads or road related areas. Confiscated articles and vehicles, a list of which are published here on Council’s website in accordance with the Local Law, may be released to the owner within a certain timeframe or sold or disposed of after that timeframe has passed, following the processes in the Local Law.

Confiscated vehicles and articles

Where a vehicle or article is confiscated or removed under the Local Law, and the owner (or a person in charge) is present at the time of confiscation, the Council officer will issue a receipt to that person. The details of these articles or vehicles will not be published on Council's website.

The details of all other confiscated articles or vehicles (the Notice of Confiscation), will be published here. They will be listed as soon as practicable and displayed for at least 14 days.

  • pay the application release fee.

Once a person has claimed a right to possession, they have up to 28 days to satisfy these requirements and collect the article or vehicle.

All confiscated vehicles or articles that are not claimed within 14 days or claimed items where the claiming requirements have not been met within 28 days, will be offered for sale in accordance with the Local Law. If there is no purchaser for a confiscated article offered for sale, Council will dispose of the article or vehicle in accordance with the Local Law.
