We are responsible for the maintenance of all Council adopted roads, footpaths and street lights in the Borough.

As well as routine inspections, our team responds to calls about maintenance issues and determine if any repair work is needed.

We aim to carry out any repair work within 28 days or, where a fault is deemed an immediate risk to users, we will respond and make safe within 24 hours. 

 

How to report a damaged road, path, pothole, road sign or a broken light

Report a problem in one of the following ways:

  • Report the problem by telephone at 01642 391959

 

Street Naming and Numbering

Stockton Council is responsible for the naming and numbering of streets and buildings throughout the Borough.

We assign names and numbers to give absolute clarity for the delivery of all mail, goods and services to residents and businesses.  It also allows emergency services to quickly locate any address they may need to get to.

The Council allocates road names and house numbers to new developments and property conversions while Royal Mail allocate postcodes.

The cost of naming and numbering are:

  • Developments - £200 per road name and £15 per plot
  • Developments which do not include a new road name - £100 per plot
  • Re-naming a property - £50.
