Pavements

Pavements that form part of the public highway in Eden are maintained by Cumbria Highways on behalf of Cumbria County Council.

Obstructed pavements

Pavements sometimes become obstructed by street works, roadworks, skips, scaffolds, hoardings, advertising boards, building materials. If these works block the pavement so pedestrians, prams or wheelchairs cannot pass by they are obstructing it.

If the pavement is blocked by a vehicle you need to telephone the Police on 101.
