Northamptonshire Highways

Highway Register enquiries

​We are the Highway Authority for the districts in Northamptonshire and hold information about the status and extent of the highway (excluding trunk roads and motorways - these are the responsibility of Highways England)


Due to the work involved in providing extent of highway information, we have implemented charges that are considered to reasonably reflect the cost of research and administration for answering these enquiries.

  • If you require a plan showing the extent of publicly maintained highway in the vicinity of a property, there is a charge of £50 per A4 sheet at 1:1250 scale.
  • However, if an area of land requires a plan larger than A3 please seek advice as the price may vary, please contact us.
    There is a charge of £10 for each additional question relating to:
    • (i) Section 38 Agreements and Adoption information. (Please note, if you require a copy of a Section 38 Agreement there are additional costs associated with this)
    • (ii) Traffic Management and Highway Schemes
    • (iii) Whether a property abuts the highway
    • (iv) Public Rights of Way
    • (v) Highway Building and Improvement Lines

We will issue an invoice once the search has been completed.

Highway Register (List Of Streets)

Highways Act 1980 Section 36(6) & (7)

We are required to keep an up-to-date list of streets maintained at public expense under Section 36 of the Highways Act 1980.

The Highways Register is constantly being amended and updated. Where there are doubts about the status shown for any particular street then you should contact Investigation and Searches (Northamptonshire Highways).

This list is held in digital format and can be accessed via our Interactive Mapping.
