Mike, you don't claim from the Council any more. They have delegated responsibility for claims to Island Roads.

It is best to make sure the road surface is sate to use by the public. It is good to know that health & safety is being carried out here. The other holes I believe are called potholes lol. I do not know one city, town or village without them!
