Civil & Structural Engineering

Whether off-site or on-site, development infrastructure is a critical component to the delivery of any proposed development. Section 278 agreements provide the legal mechanism required to carry out highway alterations on the existing network, whilst Section 38 agreements secure new road adoption by the highway authority. Section 104 Agreements deal with the provision of new adoptable sewers and Section 185 Agreements deal with the diversion of existing public sewers.
