Report any issue you find in Bottisham village; graffiti, fly-tipping, pot holes, street lights out …

Bottisham is no different to any other village in that it suffers the dreaded pot hole issue, we do occasionally suffer from fly tipping, and even our poor bus stop was the victim of graffiti recently.

It is really important that we ask all residents to take accountability for our village and we need you to report issues you find. The more we report issues the more action will is likely to be taken.

It is easy for you to report these issues ie; a pot hole, street light out and other issues directly. See the links below

Reporting Pot Holes and Road Maintenance Issues

To report a pot hole, you need to know:

  • where it is (street/road name, post code address would help)
  • roughly how big it is

If it is safe to do so, you can also provide a photograph.

It takes less than 5-10 minutes to report it on the Council websites.

To report pot holes or other problems with roads and pavements or streetlights to Cambridgeshire County Council please use these links:
