Although Northamptonshire County Council carries out regular inspections of the roads, the frequencies depend on the type of inspections being carried out, and the type of the road concerned. In the case of some of our minor roads, a whole year can elapse between inspections. Any claims brought against Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) for damage caused by these faults to your bicycle, your car and possibly even YOU may prove to be unsuccessful if NCC can say that the fault has not been reported.

With this in mind, please report road faults such as potholes or large cracks in the road surface - basically anything that could be a danger to us as road users should be reported if possible. We are hoping that by putting pressure on the council and their contractors in this way, they will begin to take a more pro-active approach to road maintenance.

For faults in Northamptonshire the procedure to report a fault is through the "Street Doctor" on-line form http://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/en/councilservices/Transport/roads/streetdoctor.

Try to include as much information as possible as to the location (if it is outside a house, quote the address), and if you can include photographs, or digital images these would be great too.
