Utilities need to coordinate their work with the local authority, whether they’re working on Motorways and A roads, or footpaths running through housing estates. Every part of this activity depends on a consistent and complete view of streets in a local authority area.
Every authority has to keep a detailed record of all the streets (including footpaths) in its area. It has a statutory responsibility to do so and this means ongoing management of huge amounts of data. In England and Wales, streets are defined in the New Roads Street Works Act (NRSWA 1991) as being:
- any highway, road, lane, footway or passage
- any square or court,
- any land laid out as a way whether it is for the time being formed as a way or not
Did you know that footways and footpaths are completely different entities? A footway essentially runs down the side of the road/carriageway, while a footpath exists its own right.
