Highway Search

Roads adopted by Brighton & Hove City Council

The council has a register of all the highways maintained at public expense as well as the private roads within the city.

You can download the details of our Highways Land Search Register listing private and public roads in the form of the Traffic Search Information document (PDF 592 KB). You can also visit one of our customer service centres at Bartholomew House or Hove Town Hall for a copy.

Adopted roads within Brighton & Hove can also be viewed on our highways map.

For a list of all the proposed traffic schemes shown on the register under Question 3.6 view the TRO Database (PDF 76KB).


Information displayed is being constantly updated and is correct to the best of our knowledge. It does not constitute a definitive statement as to the status of any particular highway. It provides information as to whether a road is adopted highway maintainable at public expense.  

The motorway and trunk road network is the responsibility of the Highways Agency. All enquiries concerning proposed motorway or trunk road improvements and extents of highways should be directed to the Highway Agency.
