Request a highway status search

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead currently offers two types of application for a Highway Status Search (where you wish to determine the extent of a highway maintained at public expense):

Standard enquiry

A standard enquiry is a request for a copy (emailed on A4 PDF) of a Highway Extents and Public Rights of Way plan of a small geographic area within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, together with a statement confirming the status of a given highway.  

The charge for a standard enquiry is £63.00.

Extended enquiry

An extended enquiry is a request for a copy (emailed on A3 PDF) of a Highway Extents and Public Rights of Way plan of a large geographic area within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, together with a statement confirming the status of a given highway or highways and/or responses to a number of supplementary questions.  The charge for an Extended Enquiry is £187.00.

Currently there is a 10 working day turnaround on both types of enquiry.

Expedited enquiries

Expedited fees for Standard Enquiry is £95, and £281 for Extended Enquiry. Turnover for expedited enquiry is 1 to 3 working days. (This additional service is not always available. If this is the case standard fees will apply).

Both enquiries are separate and distinct from a CON29 Land Charges search which can be obtained from landcharges@rbwm.gov.uk.

Please note we no longer accept cheques.

To make an application, please provide a clear plan of the location along with a full address.
