Council Services:


The county’s highways are routinely inspected for faults, including potholes, by the county council but we rely on the public to report them too.


All reports are assessed quickly and response times for potholes are prioritised by size, location and type of road.

To find timescales for inspections and repairs, download the Highways Asset Management Plan.

Temporary repairs are sometimes required to make a pothole safe. These are carried out when:

  • Wet or icy conditions would prevent a full repair bonding to the road
  • Its location means a full repair requires temporary traffic lights or a road closure
  • There is an underlying problem with the road which cannot be fixed immediately

Potholes not considered to be a danger will be included in current or future planned works programmes.

We are only potentially liable for damage to vehicles or personal injury if we have been negligent, contravening Section 58 of the Highways Act 1980. If you wish to submit an insurance claim, call 01522 782070.
