Freedom of Information Request

Potholes: numbers and payouts

Received: 12 March 2024

I would like to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The National Highways definition of the Local Road Network is that portion of the Road Network for which a Local Government is responsible, and is eligible for funding from the State Government to operate and maintain. With this in mind, for the last full year for which figures are available, please would you disclose: 1. the total number of potholes reported to your council across your Local Road Network. 2. the total amount of money spent compensating drivers for successful claims for vehicle damage from potholes in your Local Road Network. 3. the total value of funding allocated by your council for road maintenance, relating directly to pothole reports and repairs across your Local Road Network. Please can I have the response electronically.
