Highway Extent Investigation - Southport New Road, Tarleton

A query has been received relating specifically to a small parcel of land adjacent to the Southport New Road in Tarleton the land does not currently show as part of the highway extent on our Maintained at Public Expense (MAPE) digital layer, and as such an electricity company is requesting us to grant an easement to allow an electricity cable to be laid through land which is listed as a freehold held by Lancashire County Council.

The recommendation of the report is that the extent of the highway recorded at Lancashire County Council be amended to reflect the original 1939 dedication document (see Appendix A).

The areas shaded in pink on Appendix E will be amended to show as Highway Extent on our digitised MAPE layer, thus matching the dedication agreement set in December 1939.

The area shaded in purple will remain outside of the highway extent.
