What happens next
After you report a road, footpath or street furniture defect, we will visit the site to make an inspection. We will arrange for our contractor to repair the defect if it meets our criteria for repair. This can take 28 days after the inspection. Otherwise, it will be monitored for deterioration as part of our inspection schedule.
Funding from central government
When we apply for funding from central government for highway maintenance, we have to publish details on our website.
