Our service statement

Our highways budget (capital) has been reduced significantly over the last few years so we have to make tough decisions on where, when and how we carry our repairs.
We also bid for government funding where possible, usually for a specific project or improvement programme and look at ways to make additional income (revenue) such as licence fees.

Service statement on highway defects

We promise to:

  • provide a highway repair service in accordance with our Code of Practice for Highway Safety Inspections.
  • carry out regular inspections of all our roads and footways to identify any potential safety defects and to carry out repairs in line with the priority in the Code of Practice. If you want to know when your estate is inspected see our list of estates inspections by month (PDF, 192KB)
  • provide a 24 hour service and will attend to emergencies within either 2 or 24 hours depending on priority.
  • repair safety defects on the highway within 28 days of reporting by either an inspector or a member of the public as identified in the Code of Practice.
  • identify roads and footways that are showing signs of deterioration and submit them for assessment to be included in future capital schemes.
