Section 228 (7) Highways Act 1980 guidance

James Cornish made this Freedom of Information request to Gosport Borough Council as part of a batch sent to 131 authorities

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear sir or madam,

Section 228 (7) Highways Act 1980 requires a "majority in rateable value of the owners of premises in the street" - https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/198...

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

Dear Sir

Highways is not a function of Gosport Borough Council, therefore a notice under section 228 (7) of the Highways Act 1980 would be served on Hampshire County Council.
Rateable Values for Non-Domestic properties are available from the Valuation Office. With regards to Domestic properties, these have not been subject to rateable values since 1st April 1990. The Valuation Office is the public body most likely to hold this information.

Yours sincerely

Linda Coote
