Cornwall Council is responsible for over 7274km (4545 miles) of roads, from major to minor, and this includes repairing potholes. Cornwall Council relies on the public reporting them: you can do this online by clicking here and then clicking on ‘report a pothole online’, or by phoning 0300 1234 222 and following the guidance. Remember to note the reference number as you may want to call back to check on progress.
So, if there is a pothole outside your property, where you work, shop, visit the Doctors, Dentists, Hairdressers, Vets, Church, Chapel, Pub, Restaurant, Fish & Chip Shop, let Cornwall Council know about it and they can put it on the list for repair.
You may be asked to give an estimate of the surface area of the pothole and its depth – the need to report a pothole is more important than putting yourself in danger checking these details so please be careful!
So let’s make 2019 the year we take charge of our potholes!!
