The Highway Records service provides information on the extent and status of highway according to Essex County Council’s records. The List of Streets is named after Section 36 of the Highways Act 1980 which requires the Highway Authority to keep a register of highways which are maintainable at public expense. This list is published every April with any updates added to the list on a monthly basis. A copy of the list is available for inspection at your local Borough or District Council offices and at County Hall in Chelmsford. You can view the list, including the most recent updates below. You can also download the Section 36 Guidance Notes at the bottom of this page.
To view which roads we are responsible for, go to our Highways Information Map, then click on Assets, then Highway Records. (You would need to accept the terms and conditions to view the map.)
