North Lincolnshire Council

Walls and fences

Generally, land owners erect and maintain walls and fences that surround property and fields.  These provide security, privacy and mark boundaries between different landowners.

If you want to report a wall or fence next to a highway that is in a state of disrepair please use our online form:

We will maintain and repair:

  • walls supporting the structure of the highway – these are called highway retaining walls;
  • walls retaining land that has been excavated to form a highway parapet wall on bridges;
  • walls providing a safety barrier, for example, walls next to a steep drop.
