This List of Streets Gazetteer contains all highways which are maintainable at public expense (commonly referred to as "adopted roads") within Cheshire East and are the responsibility of the Regeneration Service. This includes most metalled ("tarmaced") roads and some surfaced urban footways. This information is made freely available in accordance with the Cheshire East's obligation under The Highways Act 1980, Section 36 (6) & (7). This list has been prepared using the best available information from records, at the time of publication. It does not however constitute a definitive statement as to the status of any particular highway.

The Gazetteer only provides information as to whether a highway is publicly maintainable or not by length and does not infer the lateral extent of adoption, for example whether or not a grassed verge is maintained by Cheshire East Council.

If you require additional information to that provided in the Gazetteer or a formal response from the Cheshire East on the adoption status of a highway there is a charge. In order to obtain a quote for the information you require please send details of the location you are interested in to the Adopted Highways Team (full address given below) referring to the highways you wish to know the adoption status of - the inclusion of a map highlighting the property and/or Street's will assist in answering your query. Work will commence on the enquiry upon receipt of payment, a response will normally be received within 20 working days.
