Updates

  • The report has been passed to the Highway Officer, who will carry out an inspection of the issue within 10 working days, emergency defects will be corrected or made safe at the time of the inspection, if reasonably practicable to do so. In this context, making safe may constitute displaying warning notices, coning‐off or fencing‐off to protect the public from the defect or other suitable action. If the inspection team cannot make safe the defect at the time of inspection, then they will instigate the relevant emergency call procedures to ensure appropriate resources are mobilised to make the defect safe.

    There may also be occasions when the issue reported will not be repaired as it has been classified as a minor defect and does not pose any risk to either the safety or the integrity of the highway, these are called minimum recording levels as specified in our Highways Safety Inspection Policy.

  • Update

    It is an offence under Section 1 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 to intentionally take, damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while it is in use or being built, or to intentionally kill, injure or take chicks or adults, or intentionally take or destroy any eggs. As a general rule we avoid hedge cutting during the main breeding season for nesting birds, which usually runs throughout March to August each year.

    We follow the law and where possible the guidance provided by GOV.UK.

    There may be cases when we cannot avoid disturbing a nest if it is obstructing the public highway and presents a danger to road/footpath users, for example a nest in a tree branch overhanging the carriageway, in these rare cases we will take the appropriate action with minimal disruption as possible
