Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Why is it you want to claim from the Council and not the builder that left it please?
Its bad news I am afraid.
You can't sue the Council - they are not negligent.
You can only sue the person who deposited it upon the road
That means a builder
Therefore your only case is against the builder not the Council
The Council cant assume responsibility for this.
Indeed under the Highways Act they only need to carry out reasonable inspections
You said that they removed it within 48 hours which is reasonable.
Yes, if you know who the builder is.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
