Service of notice under Section 143, Highways Act 1980

The developer has been asked 3 times (by email, in-person and by enforcement letter) to remove the obstruction. He has failed to do so.

Herefordshire Council (the highway authority) has a duty by virtue of Section 130 of the Highways Act 1980 to protect the rights of the public to the use and enjoyment of any highway and to prevent, as far as possible, the obstruction of the highway.

In line with the council’s ‘Overarching Enforcement and Prosecution Policy’ the next incremental and proportionate enforcement action is to serve a statutory notice on the person responsible requiring them to remove the obstruction
