Report potholes and other road defects

Your report will be opened during office hours - 9am to 5pm - and we will inspect your issue as soon as possible after that.

Potholes are filled on a priority basis dependent on size, width, depth and location.

If the damage is considered dangerous, repairs will be done immediately. Other repairs may take several days or longer.

In the case of unadopted roads, residents can undertake repairs to potholes themselves, or employ a contractor.

The council does not contribute towards the upkeep of private roads.
