We are responsible for all of the publicly maintained roads in Coventry and adopt land to become part of the highway - such as after a new development. This can include footpaths, carriageways and equipment such as traffic lights, street lights and drains - that means we take on responsibility for looking after that land and equipment.

We work with developers on designs, site inspections and other issues around planning permission conditions.

Planning consent is not consent to work on the roads and footpaths and developers must make sure they contact us to get permission before carrying out any work. They must also take care not to leave mud on the roads and paths as this is an offence and they can be prosecuted.
