Important clarification regarding legal road closure notices

It has come to the council’s attention that legal road closure notices which have been put up where roads have been closed following flooding refer to roads being closed for UP TO 18 months. It is important to understand that these are standard legal notices; they DO NOT provide a guide to how long the road will actually be closed.

It is standard practice when the council makes a legal order to close a road, that the order has effect for 18 months. This allows us to work on the road, open it, and if subsequent issues are discovered, re-close it without getting a new road closure order.

We are working to open all roads as quickly as possible and do not anticipate roads being closed for 18 months.
