Obstructions on public rights of way present a serious problem to users. They rate as a high priority for us. Here's a list of some of the problems we encounter:
Report a problem on a right of way
We aim to respond to your report within 3 weeks advising you when we're likely to attend.
It may not be possible to deal with your report immediately unless public safety is compromised. This is due to the volume of reports we get at certain times of the year.
How obstructions are resolved
The process of resolving an obstruction involves finding the person responsible for the obstruction and then serving a notice for its removal.
We'll serve a notice for the removal of an obstruction in all but unique circumstances.
For more information about how and why we use notices please read our enforcement page.
