Mr Cozens said increased security would be too expensive
It is too expensive for individual landowners to deal with abandoned cars, a Guernsey businessman has said.
Colin Cozens, owner of the Manor Lodging House in the Forest, said it has recently had problems with unwanted vehicles dumped in its car park.
He said increased security with CCTV, fences or automatic gates were too expensive as a solution.
Mr Cozens said there is no simple answer as the cars were left at all times of day and night.
He said he had no idea who some of the cars belonged to as the hands of the police and Environment Department were tied by data protection laws.
In a statement, the department said that if landowners started legal action against the owner of a vehicle they would release the details, but this would involve getting legal representation.
Richard Heaume, Dean of the Forest Douzaine, said the abandoned cars were "one of the biggest eyesores in the parish" and a barrier to making it pretty and attractive to visitors.
