What is a ‘highway’? We travel along them every day, but do you know the difference between a highway and a private road?

What is the difference between a footpath and a footway?

Who is responsible for maintaining your local roads and can homeowners expect an unwelcome bill from the council for repairing potholes?

Gaining access to a highway is vital for all landowners, and particularly for new development sites, so how can you check the route and boundaries of a highway, and what process must a developer follow before linking a new development to the existing road?

This live broadcast session will provide the answers to a number of key questions when considering Highway issues in property transactions.
