Pothole Damage Claims

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Carlisle City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Carlisle City Council,

1) How many claims has the Council received from motorists in the last 12 months (to most recent available) because of damage caused by potholes?

2) How many of these claims were successful?

3) What is the total amount that has been paid out as a result of the successful claims?

Yours faithfully,

Martin Cutler

Carlisle City Council
