Adopted and unadopted roads

The majority of roads in Buckinghamshire are maintained by us as the highway authority.

Private roads are maintained by the whomever fronts the road, or the organisation that own the freehold of the land. We are often asked to repair or adopt them as public highways.

Those responsible for the road should pay to bring the road up to an appropriate standard. We can then promote an adoption of the road under the Highways Act 1980.

An up to date list of all streets, containing detail about publicly maintained streets are available online
