Report a road, street or pavement problem
We maintain all council-owned roads, streets and pavements to make sure they are safe and accessible for all. Tell us if there is a problem with a road, street or pavement that makes it unsafe:
- see our highways maintenance policy
All lines on the highway must be authorised by the Council. If you paint or mark the surface of a street you can be prosecuted for defacing the public highway.
Report a pothole
Potholes can form through repeated wear of the road surface, particularly during harsh weather.
We recently received £31,808 of DfT funding to help address potholes in the Borough.
Report a dangerous pavement or street
Dangers can include:
- loose paving slabs
- loose or damaged manhole lids or other utility service covers
- missing drain covers
- overhanging vegetation and hedges
- disintegrated tarmac
- excessive weeds on busy footways
- bollards knocked over
- railings protruding
Report a problem with a sign or street furniture
We install and maintain street name plates and street furniture such as public seating, road signs and bollards. Let us know if a sign or piece of street furniture has been damaged or removed:
Report damaged or stolen paving slabs
Companies who dig up pavements must make sure there is a safe route for pedestrians and other traffic and that the pavement is restored to a good standard. Tell us if you think that this has not been done. You should also tell us if you have any information about stolen paving slabs.
Report uncut grass verges
We cut grass verges to make sure that people can use roads and pavements safely. We cut grass on all council owned land, but do not cut grass that is privately owned or on properties/estates owned by bodies other than the council.
