For assistance to Section 278 agreements, E-Mailemail@example.com The agreement outlines the requirements of the local highway authority and developers to ensure that the proposed work is carried out in accordance with the approved designs. It also explains how local road authorities can act if the developer is unable to complete the work. “A motorway authority, if it is satisfied that it will be beneficial to the public, can enter into an agreement with a person under conditions where the person pays all or part of the cost of the work that can be fixed or fixed in accordance with the agreement.” The document is prepared by the lawyer of the local highway authority and issued to the developer`s lawyer in the form of design. The details of the agreement will then be agreed before the final document is finalized and signed by both parties before the start of field work. Here you can find information on agreements with the Secretary of State for Transportation under Section 278 of the Highways Act 1980.
