Highways Act and adopting roads
New roads that have been constructed to our guidelines are normally adopted by an agreement between the developer and the council under section 38 of the Act. Existing roads will not normally be adopted unless they are brought up to current standards by the owners of the road. It may for example be unpaved, without kerbs, footways, surface water sewers, gullies and lighting, and its surface is probably in a bad condition. Guidelines are available on request.
Under Sections 205 to 218 of the Highways Act 1980, the highway authority (in this case Leeds City Council) may raise the standard of a private street by providing any or all of the missing features or by improving the standard of any existing features. This means we can adopt the street and maintain it at public expense once the necessary works have been completed.
