Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. Please report any potholes you spot here or via the Everyday Telford app.

Street lighting – crews are working on upgrading street lights in Oakengates, Lawley and Overdale, and Wellington. If you have a question about street lighting, please email

Church Aston culvert – The Dale in Church Aston remains closed following the collapse of the carriageway earlier this month. The road is expected to be shut for a few weeks yet.

Improvements in Hollies Road and surrounding area in Wellington continue until mid-December. Temporary road closures are in place, but are being phased in order to keep disruption to local residents & businesses to a minimum. More information, including FAQs and contact details here

Grounds maintenance and litter picking – crews are out in areas across the borough and have begun the job of clearing leaves now the majority have fallen. They have also started planting up the winter bedding and spring flowering bulbs. You can report a grounds maintenance issue here. Anyone wanting to report an issue with littering in their area can do so here.

Street Champions – our volunteers are doing a champion job in their communities. They report issues they see to us and do litter picks (among other things). We’re also rallying our Snow Warden volunteers ready for winter. If you would like to volunteer as a Street Champion or Show Warden in your area please let us know. Details of all volunteering opportunities here.
