We are reluctant to erect many bollards on the footways for a number of reasons, they can:

  • Present a trip hazard for pedestrians
  • Obstruct those with pushchairs or wheelchair users
  • Become a maintenance liability for us, requiring replacement when damaged

Driving on the footway and obstruction are both offences for which drivers can be prosecuted; the Police are the Authority who are responsible for enforcing these matters, and should be contacted direct as problems arise.
