Highway searches

What you need to know

To find out maintenance responsibility of a street please use www.Findmystreet.co.uk. More detailed information can be requested through the highway search.

From 1 April 2019 we charge £82.00 to provide detailed information to show the extent of the adopted or un-adopted highway (e.g. publicly or privately maintained) outside of a property or at a specific location.

Requests can be made via email or letter, however, please note that in advance of our response we will require payment of the relevant fee charge.

The information we provide will include a written response, and if requested a Highway Extent plan, and for any subsequent questions (e.g. relating to traffic schemes) these will also be charged at a cost of £77 per question (for extra questions please contact the Council first to discuss the nature of them).

To make a payment, please send a cheque and all of your documentation to:

The National Street Gazetteer www.findmystreet.co.uk website contains information about highways maintainable at public expense and can be viewed as a map or as a list.
