Introduction

What is a 'Highway'? Do you know? Your clients purchasing properties on new estates would be horrified to know that their access road is unlikely to ever become adopted despite the existence of s.38 agreements and bonds. You may be blamed for failing to warn them of the risks they face.

Whether a highway adjoins land and the status of any road or track that affects it is of vital importance. Development sites may be worthless without access and domestic properties may be unsaleable if they do not abut an adopted highway. Whether a road is a highway can be difficult to ascertain and local authorities may be unable to help.
