Walls beside roads


Walls are erected to provide security, privacy and to mark boundaries between different landowners.

Following a review of road service provision and in line with government guidance, we will be working on a limited number of projects where it is safe to do so including:

  • road resurfacing and specialist surface schemes
  • gully cleansing and maintenance
  • street lighting maintenance
  • bridges and structures.

There will be delays in responding to non-emergency and non-essential works. All activity will be undertaken with staff working to social distancing guidance.

Critical and emergency works including emergency repairs, road traffic accidents and emergency road defects will continue.

In general the walls and fences that surround property and fields are erected by and are the responsibility of the land owner. However, we maintain and repair walls and fences that surround public roads and pavements:
