If you have asked for a response we will aim to fully respond to you within 28 days, and during quieter times we will respond to you much quicker.
If you have reported a highway problem we will investigate the matter as soon as possible and decide what action we will take. If the problem could be hazardous to road-users we will repair the problem within 28 days (and sooner depending on how hazardous the matter is).

If you have reported a highway problem caused by a private landowner (for example an overgrown hedge from private land) or a utility company, we will contact the third party and ask them to correct as soon as possible.
