Roads and Highways Enforcement

The Council has a duty to manage its highways in a safe and efficient manner and to protect public rights of access on the road and footpath network.

The council will take action against individuals or businesses who create a nuisance, danger or impede the passage along a highway. The action taken will be dependent upon the circumstances of each case and the severity of the issue or problem. Sometimes information and education is all that is required but for the most serious or persistent cases formal legal action may be required.

For further information about the scope of our enforcement activity please follow the Highway Enforcement page.

To enquire about or report an issue on the highway you can either call StreetScene or use our online reporting facility "Report Road Problem".
