Private streets and roads


Lancashire County Council logoRoad adoption is a term used to describe the council taking ownership of a 'private street'.

A 'private street' is a street that is not maintained at public expense. This means that the council, as a highway authority, is under no obligation to carry out repairs to the street, even though it might be a highway which the public has a right to use. However the District Council does have delegated powers to carry out certain repairs on 'private' streets, but the legislation says that the owners of property fronting a private street should be responsible for the cost of repairs.

For more information about private roads see Lancashire County Council.
