List of streets

We are required under Section 36(6) and (7) Highways Act 1980 to keep up-to-date and available for public inspection a list of streets which are highways maintainable at public expense. Our records are held in a linear format on a map background.


We are the highway authority for county roads in Derbyshire with the exception of Derby City Council, which is a unitary authority.

Motorways and trunk roads within Derbyshire are the maintenance responsibility of Highways England.

The legal definition of a highway includes any road or way over which the public has a right of passage. The list of streets therefore includes some public bridleways and public footpaths as well as public carriage roads (including any associated footway or verge).      

Certain highways may historically have been publicly maintainable. Others may have become publicly maintainable through legislation or, more recently, through legal agreement following which they become maintainable at public expense by the highway authority or, for motorways and trunk roads, Highways England.

Disclaimer

Information displayed on the map is being constantly updated and is correct to the best of our knowledge. It provides confirmation as to whether a particular way is a highway maintainable at public expense but does not constitute proof as to the status of that way. Neither does it give details as to the lateral extent of the highway, for example the width of the particular highway or whether it includes a verge. Lines shown on the map are for indicative purposes only.
