Permanent road closures

Section 116 of the Highways Act 1980 and Section 247 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 allows the council to close roads permanently because:

  • They are not necessary
  • A better route will replace it
  • To allow a new development with planning permission to be built

If you require further information about permanent road closures, please contact the City and neighbourhood team.
