Street furniture refers to anything installed on a road or pavement to help keep drivers, cyclists and pedestrians safe. The Highways team are responsible for inspecting street furniture to ensure it stays in good condition for residents to use.

Items we are responsible for include:  

  • Pedestrian guard rails
  • Cycle stands  
  • Signs
  • Street name plates
  • Salt bins
  • Litter and dog waste bins
  • Benches
  • Information boards 

Utility companies are responsible for the likes of telephone poles, mobile phone masts, manholes and fire hydrants.
