Wall maintenance

Generally the walls and fences that surround property and fields are erected and maintained by the land owner.

We are only responsible for maintenance and repair of walls and fences which are owned by the Council, these include:

  • Walls supporting the structure of the highway - these are called Highway Retaining Walls
  • Walls retaining land that has been excavated in cutting to form a highway parapet wall on bridges
  • Walls providing a safety barrier for example a steep drop at the other side of the wall.
  • Report a problem with a wall
