Highways

As residents of Chorleywood ourselves, we are always keeping an eye out for anything that we think needs attention. Whether that’s potholes, faded road markings, failing surfaces or flooding, we ensure that the relevant bodies are notified and also ask our local councillors to help if required.

How to report faults and issues

Though we are always happy to support residents with any Highways Issues, we also wish to encourage residents themselves to raise complaints to the relevant authorities.  We appreciate that knowing which authority is responsible for which issue can feel like a bit of a minefield, but by clicking the REPORTING ISSUES button to the right you will find some clear guidelines on how to proceed. Once you’ve found your issue, we have provided an associated link which will take you to the right Council and provide the necessary options.
