Street obstruction

Reports via our website are processed during office hours only, and in the order they are received. If you think the problem is urgent, call us on 020 8379 1000 to report this instead.

You can report a street obstruction if you see things blocking a pavement, public right of way or road. We can help remove items if they do not have a legal permit to be there.

It is a crime to prevent free passage along any path. The person responsible can receive a £100 fixed penalty notice and be fined up to £1,000 if prosecuted. If the individual does not clear the road, we will also recover the costs from them for removing the obstruction.
