Road and path faults like potholes are top of the list of residents’ concerns – and so remain one of the County Council’s priorities to tackle. Currently when a fault is reported and we don’t have enough detail to determine the next course of action, an officer has to make a site inspection.
The volunteers, who live or work locally, would inspect faults in their immediate neighbourhood and provide the additional information required. This would speed up the process and enable repairs, where required, to be progressed faster. Volunteers will receive training, guidance and appropriate equipment to undertake the inspections and will be supported by council officers. They will need access to the internet, a camera and mobile phone. To find out more:
