Highways and Drainage

Key Contacts

View all our people

It is important that, early on in the development process, developers and local authorities consider the implications of a scheme on existing highway and drainage networks, even where such networks are outside of the development boundary.

We have a team dedicated to working on statutory agreements for highways and drainage. Our experienced team act for developers, landowners, statutory undertakers and highway authorities. Statutory Agreements we advise on include:

  • Agreements under sections 104/116/185 of the Water Industry Act 1991
  • Agreements under sections 38 and 278 Agreements of the Highways Act 1980

We also advise on:

  • sewer adoptions and requisition advice
  • highway dedication and adoption
  • Deed of Easements and Bonds in relation to infrastructure
  • Stopping Up orders
  • Diversion orders
