Adopted roads are roads that are managed and maintained by the Council. It doesn't matter who owns the ground on which the road is built. Until a road has been adopted it remains private and it is the responsibility of the developer or house owner to maintain it.
New roads can be built by developers to a standard that allows them to become adopted when finished.
Adopting an existing private road
For a private road to be adopted the road must be brought up to the standards set by the Council. The cost of this work is met by the developers or builders in a new estate, or by the residents of an existing road.
