Stopping Up Orders

Stopping Up Orders are made under the Highways Act 1980. Each notice for any Stopping Up Orders stipulates the time and date that the council as Highway Authority will be making the application for the Stopping Up Order before the Magistrates Court. The effect of a Stopping Up Order is to close a road or a section of a road.
