Welcome to the Highways Service Information Centre
The Highway Records service provides information on the extent and status of highway according to Essex County Council’s records. The List of Streets is named after Section 36 of the Highways Act 1980 which requires the Highway Authority to keep a register of highways which are maintainable at public expense. This list is published every April with any updates added to the list on a monthly basis.
A copy of the list is available for inspection at your local Borough or District Council offices and at County Hall in Chelmsford. You can view the list, including the most recent updates below.
You can also download the Section 36 Guidance Notes at the bottom of this page.
This publication lists roads only and does not include independent footways, cycle tracks, footpaths, bridleways or byways.
Whilst the purpose of the Register is to list all maintainable highways, the publication also incorporates details of other ways in respect of which the highway authority has no maintenance obligation.
For the purpose of the list, such ways are described as follows:
The list is not exhaustive and includes those ways that have come to notice of the highway authority.
