Highway Adoption Status search tool
This search tool has been prepared using best available information from records compiled by the county council and is correct to the best of our knowledge. It does not constitute a definitive statement as to the status of any particular highway, neither is it a comprehensive list of all streets in the county (though many are included for informative purposes).
The extent of adoption (carriageway, footway and verge) cannot be inferred from search results, please see highway record enquiries if you require this information.
The classification of a named road (whether it is an A, B or C road) is not specified in search results. To find this information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
By using the Highway Adoption Status Search tool you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of use outlined above.
The combination of road name and town/parish or district that you enter may return no results
