Street Status Guidance
findmystreet.co.uk shows where a street is, what its official name is in the National Street Gazetteer (NSG), and who is responsible for maintaining that street.
Each street falls into one of four categories:
|Maintainable at public expense||The street has been identified as maintainable at public expense. Detailed highway extents are held by the local highway authority.|
|Not maintainable at public expense||
The information used to populate the National Street Gazetteer does not identify that any part of the street is maintained at public expense.
|Mixed maintenance responsibility||More than one maintenance responsibility has been recorded against the street. Clarification must be sought with the local highway authority for relevant extents.|
|Street for Addressing Purpose Only||Sometimes a street isn’t actually a physical thing, but is purely used for locating a property. This could include a Terrace. It is held in the National Street Gazetteer but is referenced as only for addressing.|
Please note: findmystreet.co.uk only shows who’s responsible for maintenance of the street. It doesn’t show access rights or ownership of a street.
