Section 278 Agreement

Attaining a section 278 agreement is an integral part of developing works to a public highway. Without this legislation a highway authority cannot permit a developer and improvements to a site will not be made. The highway authority depends on your location. In England, this will either be Highways England or local authority. Furthermore, the agreement usually includes various details like costs, design, planning permission and provision for inspection.
