We offer highway advice to help you design your development, which may save you time and money by speeding up the planning application process.
When you are considering a site for development contact us for advice on highway matters. One of the team will handle your proposal up to the stage where planning consent is granted.
Our Highway Adoptions team ensure that all new roads that are to be adopted and maintained by us as public highways are constructed in accordance with the approved plans and to the correct standard.
Highway development information & guidance
Information sheets can help developers through the highway and transportation side of the planning application process.
Our guidance and specification documents provide developers with information for the design of new residential or commercial roads and their associated works.
Higher classification of roads must be designed in accordance with the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges using the predicted traffic flows for those roads.
The guidance and specifications should also be read in conjunction with the Government’s Manual for Streets documents.
