|The council would only be able to comment on the section they actually own, if any. Where there is an agreed "service strip", this is uslaly the first 1.8 to 2.0m behind the kerb. The remainder is a private driveway and they have neither jurisdiction nor, I suspect, any wish to get involved.|
You should put your concerns in writing and send them via recorded delivery to the contractor, copying-in the council Highways' Team. Request a written answer in which they set out exactly how the intend to rectify the issues you've identified, and indicate the timescale involved.
If that gets no response, that would be the time to consider seeking legal advice and obtaining an assessment report from an independent third party.
Thanks for your reply Tony, it's much appreciated.
The council actually own the whole area, this is how it used to look.
I'll see what the senior Highways officer has to say next week and go from there. If I'm honest I can see this going to court.
Thanks again Tony.
