Public Highways in the Parish are the responsibility of Westmorland & Furness  Council, who is the highways authority.  The Parish Council recognises that there are often problems with our roads such as potholes and flooding and works with  Highways and our WAF Low Furness Councillor to try to tackle issues as they arise.  But it is important that you, as residents, also get involved with the process by reporting problems when you see them (see below for details of how).

Reporting a Problem

To Highways

Contact the highways authority directly to report:

  • Serious problems or floods
  • Any issues on the Coast Road
  • Any problem requiring immediate attention
  • Issues outside the parish
  • Potholes
  • Obstructions

Contact Highways via their HIMS (Highways Information Management System) online at: https://www.westmorlandandfurness.gov.uk/parking-streets-and-transport/streets-roads-and-pavements/road-maintenance-closures-and-improvements


Or by phone – Highways Hotline:  0300 373 3306

The Parish Council does employ a Parish Steward who can do some smaller works such as clearing vegetation etc. Please contact the Clerk if you wish to report anything like this.
