Farming and the Public Highway

Working in partnership with the agricultural industry

Cumbria County Council is keen to work in partnership with farmers and agricultural contractors to help ensure that a number of maintenance issues which affect the highway are attended to. Our guide to farming and the public highway highlights a number of areas where working together can greatly help the county council sustain a safe and serviceable highway network for all users. The council, like the farming community, is subject to change and therefore it is important that we try, wherever possible, to work jointly in order to meet respective areas of responsibility in the most effective way.
