Highways Development Control

Highways Development Control helps to assess the impact of planning applications on our highway and transport infrastructure. We provide services including:

  • technical support for long term strategic planning and evidence at planning appeals
  • assistance with proposed changes or additions to the highway - we can supervise the design and construction of new roads and footpaths that will be adopted as public highways
  • supervision for the design and construction of changes to the existing networks

We also need to be consulted on how streets are named and properties are numbered.
