Northamptonshire Highways

Section 38 Agreements

We can provide copies of a Section 38 Agreement (or associated documents) covering the road upon which your property is located​

This is only available where the road has not been adopted by the Highways Authority.

We charge a fee to reflect the cost of administration and copying incurred.

Please note that it is not usually possible to provide copies of these documents electronically due to the large plans connected to the legal agreement.


​Copy Section 38 Agreement and plan​£36 (£30 plus VAT)
​Copy Deed of Variation (please note that there may be more than one of these)​£24 (£20 plus VAT per copy)
​Advance Payment Code Notice and Bond (if applicable)​£18 (£15 plus VAT)

Copies of the above agreements are administered by LGSS Law (the legal service providers to Northamptonshire Highways).

How to request a copy

To request a copy of an agreement please phone 01604 367988 or 01604 367036 or email

Please provide:

  • the full property address
  • your contact details

When we receive a request we will check to identify the legal agreements covering the property and notify you of the cost of providing such copies.

We accept payment by cheque (made payable to Northamptonshire County Council) or cash.

It can take up to 7 working days for the copy agreements to be provided to you from receipt of payment.
