Creation, diversion and 'stopping up' of public rights of way are all subject to legal orders which may be under either the Highways Act or Town and Country Planning Act legislation depending on the circumstances. Rights of Way may also relate to rights on foot, on foot or horse or to all classes of public user. The Highway Act means of closure can require appearance in local Magistrates’ Court and where objections are raised to a proposed change to a public right of way under the Town and Country Planning Act this can in some cases lead to a local public inquiry. In these instances it is recommended that you take advice from a highway expert witness.
Examples of our work, acting as Transport Consultant for our Clients, in the role of their highway expert witness are:
- Stopping Up Orders at Fereday Street, Manchester - private sector
- Diversion of public footpath Pottery Lane Knottingley - private sector
