Cumbria County Council is responsible for the maintainance of roads. In the first instance please contact them directly. Parish Councillor Mike Archer is our ‘Parish Highwayman’ and leads on roads for the Parish Council. Crosby Ravensworth Parish Council can feedback and lobby on Highways and Footpath issues and has a good working realtionship with the county.
Members of the public can report a fault easily online and add photos via the county council’s website. There is an improved search facility that uses postcodes or street names, plus the ability to identify a fault’s location via pinpointing on a map.
An advantage of logging the fault via the new online service is that people can provide their email address and receive automatic progress updates direct to their inbox. You can also view faults that have already been reported on a map, view the current status of each fault and register for automated updates on any previously reported fault.
Faults reported online will be instantly allocated to a highways area steward who will review the information and allocate the job to one of the council’s highways teams. The team will then assess the fault and where possible repair it or as a minimum make it safe in line with the council’s agreed standards.
