  • We have investigated this report and assessed the issue is not the responsibility of Bromley Council. This could be because the location or asset is private property, an unadopted road or beyond the maintained extent of a road. We are unable to progress this report further and this report will be closed. Please note that Bromley do not hold records of private ownership but if the information has been registered, the ownership of private land may be found via a land registry search: https://www.gov.uk/ government/ organisations/ land-registry

  • But the fence is falling onto public property, the car park for residents, so the owners need to be informed. If there are nails etc this will cause damage to residents cars in the parking area.

  • Thank you for your report.

    This has been forwarded on to the Highways Officer to take forward.

  • Thank you for your enquiry.

    The Highway Authority has no obligation or responsibility to fence off the highway unless a danger exists to highway users, such as a large level drop. That does not appear to be the case here and a land search of area appears to indicate that the adjacent properties ownership boundaries are all the way out to this fence line. Our opinion would be that given this, and the fact that we have no responsibility to fence off the highway we would consider the fence to be the responsibility of the properties it borders. We appreciate this may not be the answer that was expected, but to put it into context, were this shown to be a ‘highway’ fence our current process would be to remove any broken sections and not replace them, as they would not be serving any highway purpose and therefore not be required.

  • A second fence has now also been vandalised by the same individual kicking a ball against it, are you going to contact the owners of said fences for repair? Or even contact the person who keeps destroying them?

  • The person who keeps destroying the fences lives in council-owned property.

  • Thank you for your report.

    Bromley do not have any council-owned properties at this location and any damage to the fences will need to be repaired by the landowner. Any evidence of those causing damage can be reported via: Street.Enforcement@bromley.gov.uk or reported to the Police as criminal damage.

    If there are any damaged fence panels on the highway, we will ask our service providers to remove these so there is no obstructions to the highway.

    This report is now closed.
