Highway information terms and conditions

Terms and conditions for the use of the online highways map being created.

By accessing and viewing the map, you are required to acknowledge and agree to the following conditions:

This digital mapping data is representative and informative only and not definitive. Users should not draw conclusions from it or make commitments based on these datasets.

The mapping data layers are subject to constant change as data is updated and programmes amended.

Important note regarding accessing the Highway Record information

By accessing this mapping layer, you are required to acknowledge and agree to the following conditions:

This digital mapping layer is representative only and is not definitive. Users should not draw conclusions from it or make commitments based on this dataset. It does not fulfil the requirement to maintain a list of streets of highway maintainable at public expense under the Highways Act Section 36(6). This is available on our public website

This mapping layer is subject to constant change as research is ongoing.

The information displayed as a line along the centre of the carriageway has not been verified as it has not yet been researched. The information which extends between boundaries on the map shows the general extent of the public highway and remains subject to change, should further information to the contrary come to light.

In respect of historic highway boundaries, this information is given with the proviso that where there is a roadside ditch or pond (many of which are not shown on the base mapping), that ditch or pond and any land to the rear would not normally form part of the highway and the highway boundary is usually the roadside edge of the ditch or pond.

This mapping layer may not reflect changes which have occurred in respect of new developments or alterations to the landscape.

This dataset is intended as a guide only and should not be relied upon for planning purposes or legal decisions and is provided pursuant to the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. It is not a definitive statement from Oxfordshire County Council as to the legal position of highway boundaries and measurements should not be scaled from this mapping layer.

The Ordnance Survey provides a base upon which the digitised mapping layer has been plotted and the highway record is plotted in relation to it. New developments may not be shown on this base map. For further information in respect of the Ordnance Survey, please refer to www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk

Should you require further information in respect of the extent of highway at any location within Oxfordshire, you should first apply for a Highways Search using our online form at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/highwaysregister. Charges for provision of this information may apply and we will provide a quotation upon receipt of your request.

We will not answer any queries regarding the extent of the public highway unless you are in possession of a current highways search.
