Section 228 (7) Highways Act 1980 guidance

Barrow in Furness Borough Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear sir or madam,

Section 228 (7) Highways Act 1980 requires a "majority in rateable value of the owners of premises in the street" -

Please provide any internal or external guidance you have in regards to how you would ascertain rateable value for this purpose for domestic and non-domestic properties.

If you do not have such guidance, why not? And how would you go about ascertaining rateable value if such an application was received under Section 228 (7) Highways Act 1980?

Yours faithfully,

James Cornish
