HIGHWAY STATUS SEARCH
You can use this search facility to find out whether a named road is maintained by the County Council as Highway Authority. It is not a comprehensive list of all roads in Leicestershire but most are included for informative purposes.
This search tool fulfils the County Council's requirement under Section 36 of the Highways Act 1980 to maintain a list of publicly maintainable highways. To improve our service, the County Council also lists the status of roads that are not publicly maintained (e.g. roads under Section 38 agreements). This information is not definitive and details on how further information can be obtained can be found in the Searches section of our website.
Part Publicly Maintained Roads
The County Council can clarify the status of a part publicly maintained road in relation to a particular property on that road. This is done free of charge by sending an e-mail with a plan of the area highlighting the property in question, to HighwayEnquiries@leics.gov.uk, or by faxing a plan highlighting the property in question to 0116 305 6618. We will then respond confirming whether the property in question abuts the publicly maintained section of highway.
How to use this search tool:
To search, enter the name of the road and click "Search". If you are unsure of the road name, just enter part of it (e.g. Garden - will list all roads that contain "Garden", such as Brook Gardens, Garden Close etc).
This will give you a complete list of streets containing the entered value.
To narrow down the search,you may also choose the appropriate parish and/or district before clicking the "Search" button. This is useful for common road names such as Main Street, Church Lane etc.
