Revocation of prescribed lines

Revocation of prescribed lines under the Public Health Act and Road Improvement Act 1925, now Section 73 and 73 of the Highways Act 1980.


Sometimes the prescribed lines may be required to be revoked to allow for development to take place.

The Highway Authority will assess them on an individual basis and if it is felt that the revocation of the lines affecting the property would not be detrimental to highway safety the Highway Authority will revoke them for a current fee of £250 to cover administration costs.
