    Are councils responsible for cleaning roadwork mess?


    There’s work going on just behind my house but its causing plenty of dirt, sediment etc. to gather on the road. Can I have the council ensure that something is done about it, such as the builders cleaning up the mess, etc.? It is quite a nuisance and doesn’t make the street look particularly good. And I’m not the only one, a few other neighbours aren't happy either. It’s not the biggest deal in the world but we’d prefer if there wasn’t that much of a mess on the road.

    "Unfortunately, the people responsible for making the mess are liable. Contact the council and they will ensure the mess will be cleared up at the cost of the person responsible"
