Highway Extent enquiry

What is a highway extent enquiry?

A highway extent enquiry gives information about the extent of the highway that is maintained at public expense by Worcestershire County Council. This can include the carriageway, footway, grass verges and unmade surfaces adjacent to roads as well as areas of land. The motorway and trunk road network is the responsibility of Highways England, all enquiries regarding motorways and trunk roads should be directed to them.

You will be asked to identify the property or land in question, highlighted on a plan which will need to be uploaded and submitted with your application. Payment is taken at the point of order via debit or credit card.

The cost of a highway extent enquiry is £58.00, this is for producing one A4 plan at a scale of 1:1250 or 1:2500. Upon receipt of this request, should the search site require A3 or larger, we will advise you of this together with any additional costs involved before we process the enquiry.

Please note Worcestershire County Council is an innovative forward thinking Council thereby keen to be more efficient and wherever possible reduce operating costs for itself and our customers, subsequently please note as from the 1st July 2019 an administration fee of £15.00 will be charged for processing cheques.

A refund will be available at this point if you decide not to proceed with the enquiry.
