Our website will be under planned maintenance on Monday 23rd September 2019.  Please note this will cause some of our forms to be unavailable and we will be unable to provide you with the progress of completed forms also.

Report road and pavement problems

You can contact us to report road damage, street issues or flooding. You can tell us about potholes, abandoned vehicles, streetlights and highway obstructions. We have information about our highway inspections and road maintenance programme.

Report a pothole, or a road or pavement defect

Potholes and damaged roads can be dangerous for motorists and cyclists. We are responsible for potholes and other defects on local roads and pavements.

Report an obstruction of your dropped kerb

White T bar markings in front of a dropped kerb are advisory, but where a vehicle parks across any dropped kerb without the permission of the property owner/occupier, a penalty charge notice can be issued.

We can only enforce this offence after a complaint has been received, because you can give someone permission to park there, so we need to know if someone is parked there without your consent.

Use our form to report a vehicle obstruction.
