  • Thank you for your Highways report.
    We have inspected the defect and carried out works to make the issue safe. Any further repairs that are needed will be completed in line with the timeframes set out in our maintenance plan.

    Many thanks,

    Thank you for your report. Please be aware that it is not the responsibility of CBC to clean up mud and mess caused by farmers and farming machinery. We have made the area safe by displaying signs alerting and warning residents of the muddy footway. I would advise seeking communication with the land owner to politely discuss cleaning arrangements after their vehicles have left the fields. Kind regards.
