Street maintenance problems like blocked storm drains do not fix themselves, but you can do your bit for our community by reporting them to the City Council. Remember that the Council relies on residents to report these issues – if they don’t get reported, they don’t get fixed. Go on – don’t wait for someone else to do it!
You can report most of these issues on the Council website at
Here are some of the many categories you will find on that page:
Report a Problem with a Road or Pavement, including:
- Carriageway defect, e.g. pothole
- Problem with a pavement
- Problem with road markings
- Missing/damaged drain covers
- Bollards, railings or road signs
Broken Street light. Each street light has a unique identifying number which you can use to report it.
Blocked gullies (storm drains). These frequently get blocked by debris washed down roads by heavy rain. Once they are blocked, rainwater sits above them in a large puddle. The Council have a specialist team to unblock them.
The Council will normally respond and take action within a reasonable time. If you are not happy with the response, you can contact one of your Nottingham City Councillors .
