Adoption of roads and facilities by Bedford Borough Council


The adoption process between developer and the Borough Council can take a very long time! Many of the areas of Great Denham remain un-adopted after some 7 or 8 years! Financial provision for ongoing maintenance of adoptable areas is inlcuded in the S106 agreements signed between developer and Borough Council - for more details see S106 Agreement. 

The developer must request adoption of the Borough Council before anything can happen. Once the Council are happy to go ahead, a pre-adoption phase of maintenance is started, during which the developer must bring everything up to standard; this is then followed by a 12 month maintenance period, during which the developer remains responsibile for repair and maintenance of all items. Only once this is completed and the Borough Council have satisfied themselves to the standard of the area will they formally adopt the roads.

Until adoption all issues should be reported to the developer

After adoption the Borough Council is responsible for all repair and maintenance.
