We regularly advise upon highways and right of way issues associated with development schemes. This includes the construction and adoption of new highways, as well as diversion and extinguishment orders. We are also able to represent clients at public inquiries and court hearings, including those related to nationally significant infrastructure projects.  

Our areas of focus include:

  • Applications and associated consents for highway developments on behalf of public authorities;

  • Negotiation of Highways Agreements and Licences;

  • Securing Stopping-up or Diversion Orders, including advice on statutory powers and process;

  • Public footpaths and bridleways;

  • Disputes over Highway Boundaries, and Definitive Map amendments;

  • Traffic Regulation Orders; and

  • Drainage and Sewer Infrastructure Agreements.
