New Residential Roads will normally be adopted if they serve more than 5 dwellings and comply with the following basic requirements:
Private Residential Roads in New Developments will only be permitted if in a cul-de-sac system, where there will be the continuing presence of a Management Body, (e.g. Housing Association) to organise future maintenance. The Council will need to be satisfied that adequate arrangements will be made for its on-going maintenance. These arrangements should include street cleansing, lighting, access for refuse collection and statutory undertakers, maintenance of the highway surfacing and public liability insurance.
Roads on Industrial Estate Roads will only be adopted at the request of the developer, and the Council reserve the right to consider whether they wish to adopt for maintenance at public expense or not. Consideration will take account of the location, the type of industry and the provision of adequate off-street manoeuvring and parking facilities. The layout and construction standards are considered on an individual basis.
