This course will provide attendees with a solid understanding of the foundations and principles of highway law and development.

The course will cover:

  • Foundations of highway law, the principles of how a highway comes into being and the extent of the highway
  • Highways in the context of development and the interplay of highway law with planning permission, planning conditions and planning obligations
  • Highway agreements and other methods to adopt a highway
  • Land compensation
  • Highway structures
  • Highway licences

This course is aimed primarily at local government lawyers who are new to highways and development law and wish to understand the basic legal framework.
