"Mini Section 278 Agreements" for developer led or third party highway works

The County Council’s Transport Development Control team is looking to introduce an amended mechanism for how developer led highway works are agreed with the County Council. Currently this is generally through Section 278 agreements, which will remain the case for the majority of schemes.  However, where the proposed highway works are of a low value and present minimal risk to the County Council’s highway asset, a new light touch process is proposed to be introduced. This will be in the form of Mini Section 278 agreements. The report to Lead Member will seek approval for this approach, along with the proposed guidance on this matter to be published.
