Potholes - crews are filling potholes that have been reported to us. Please report any you spot here.

Street lighting – the main programme to upgrade street lights to more energy efficient LEDs is complete. Crews are, however, revisiting various locations to upgrade any less straightforward lights e.g. where access had been an issue on their initial visit. If you have a question about street lighting, please email

Grounds maintenance and litter picking – grounds maintenance crews are out as usual this week – mowing and tidying. You can report a grounds maintenance issue here
Street cleansing crews are also out and about - road/footpath sweeping, litter picking, bin emptying and cleaning chewing gum in Southwater.  Anyone wanting to report an issue with littering in their area can do so here.
