Generally the walls and fences that surround property and fields are erected and maintained by the land owner.

We, as a local authority, will maintain and repair:

  • walls supporting the structure of the highway - these are called 'highway retaining walls'
  • walls retaining land that has been excavated  to form a cutting for the highway
  • walls that form a highway parapet (wall) on bridges
  • walls providing a safety barrier for example where there is a steep drop at the other side of the wall.
