Rights of way declaration register

The statutory declaration register is maintained under Section 31A of the Highways Act 1980. The register contains statements and maps that land owners have given to us, and the associated declarations.


We've introduced a scale of charges for deposits made pursuant to Section 31(6) of the Highways Act 1980 and Section 15A(1) of the Commons Act 2006:

  • areas of land up to 100 hectares - £309
  • areas of land 100 to 500 hectares - £359
  • areas of land 500 to 1,000 hectares - £409
  • areas of land in excess of 1,000 hectares - £459

The scale of charges may be subject to review in the future.

The application will be subject, where the land comprises more than one parcel of land or the land is segmented by highways, to additional fees of £50 for each additional parcel and/or segment.

The full report is attached to this page.
