This is updated every Monday and shows the following 10 days, please note this is only up to date at the time of creation and will not contain information on emergency works, however this can be found on the site.


  • To log an enquiry, we would ask that you use the ‘Report a problem’ online form wherever possible - this form guides you through the identification and location of the issue,  allowing easy input of the relevant data.  You do not have to log in or have an account to do this and you will receive an acknowledgement, reference number, and receive regular updates on the issue reported.


  • For all other enquiries that do not fit into the ‘Report a problem’ form, please submit these using the exclusive email address ', this was introduced several years ago to ensure that Parish Councils and Community Organisations are provided with a consistent and centralised approach.



Information on local services, latest news and events can also be found on our Information for parishes and communities webpage and LCC website.
