Potholes

Potholes filled

We publish totals of potholes we have filled during each accounting year, from April to March.

Totals of potholes found by the council include those noted by council officers:

  • during routine safety inspections
  • in passing, whilst using the roads

In the totals of reports to the council up to March 2020:

  • a single report of multiple potholes is counted as one report
  • a pothole reported more than once is counted as one report
  • a report is counted only if the pothole's size, type and level of risk meant it needed work

All pothole reports will be counted from April 2020 onwards.

Totals of potholes found and reported may not match the total filled because if a pothole is reported towards the end of one quarter, it may not be filled until the next quarter.
