Locality Briefing


If you spot a defect on the network, you’ve got two options for reporting it:

You can report any non-urgent issues via the Herefordshire Council website or via the Reporting App

For any urgent issues or emergencies, call our Customer Services Team on 01432 261800 - available 24/7

When you report issues this way, we can make sure everything is properly logged, assessed, and allocated to the right teams as quickly as possible. You can check the progress of a defect, or see if it’s already been logged, via the progress map on Herefordshire Council website.
