Statutory list of roads

There's a reference to this on the page. The term used in section 36(6) of the Highways Act 1980 is 'list of streets', and this is the term I've seen used more in the Midlands of England. Possibly worth a tweak (and who knows, maybe another webcrawl under that term).

Re whether the list is available offline: Are Highways a devolved matter? If not, the Act presumably applies in Scotland and every statutory list must be made available for inspection free of charge. It would take a dedicated mapper to go and inspect it at the council offices, but it's a statutory requirement! :)

I found this reference because I was about to start a page 'Statutory list of streets' - I'll wait for any response here before I do. eteb3 (talk) 08:20, 19 September 2021 (UTC)
