All local roads are managed and maintained by Council with the exception of declared Main Roads, which are the direct responsibility of the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).

When dealing with claims, Council has certain protections from liability under the NSW Civil Liability Act 2002. Accordingly, Council may not be liable for damages arising from potholes and other hazards unless Council was aware of the risk and acted negligently by not addressing the issue.

Council recommends that you seek professional legal advice if you are unsure as to whether you are able to claim for your loss or damage.

Should you wish to make a claim against Council, please complete the claim for compensation form and include all relevant documentation.
