Advanced payments code

The Advance Payments Code (APC) forms part of the Highways Act 1980 (Sections 219-225). The Code secures payment of the costs of street works in private streets adjacent to new buildings. This ensures the street works authority (Highway Authority) can complete the roadworks if the builder is unable to complete them.

We will carry out an APC assessment where the road(s) within a development is over 100 yards in length (91.44 metres) and will send this assessment to the landowner or developer, for payment.
