Report a damaged or uneven pavement
Tell us if you see a broken or damaged paving stone or kerb in Gateshead.
You will need to tell us the exact location of the damage. You can also upload an image of the issue if you have one.
We aim to inspect all reports within 10 working days.
If the issue reported is considered an emergency or safety risk, we will make the area safe as soon as possible. This may include temporary measures before work begins. We aim to fix issues within eight weeks.
Only pavement defects that we consider to be dangerous can be repaired, such as those likely to cause a trip hazard or result in a fall.
If someone else is responsible for fixing an issue with the pavement, we will send the details to the relevant organisation.
If there is a hole or hollow in the surface of a footpath, you can report a pothole instead.
