Welcome to the Highways Service Information Centre
Confirmation of highway adoption, highway boundary plans and nearby road scheme proposals.
Information relating to land ownership is held by the Land Registry
For copies of legal agreements only please contact the Land Charges and Searches Team - Highway.Status@essexhighways.org
Anyone can request information, for example members of the public interested in the status of the road where they live or solicitors/personal search companies who require information on the highway (over and above their land charge search carried out by the District/Borough Council).
You can review Public Right of Way information, highway boundary, lighting and a list of roads maintained at public expense (adopted roads) for free online.
