also known as: Potholes, Road maintenance.
Potholes are defined as a defect in the highway surface, which is surrounded by surfacing material on all sides. They can develop over short periods of time and depending on the size, depth and location there will be a greater or lesser risk to the general public. The response of the County Council will be dependent on the severity of the reported defect.
