2 – Stopping Up Orders,
Construction Consent and Adoption
2.1 Stopping Up Orders:
Applicants should be aware of the importance of the requirement to formally Stop Up certain areas, roads and public paths, which due to their development layout, will no longer have a public right of passage.
Where this process is required because of related development, it is normally carried out
under the Town & Country Planning (Scotland) Act (1997) following the grant of planning
permission. The associated advertising costs payable to the Council are £1,250. The timescale for an unopposed order is typically around six months.
The simplest way of demonstrating the Stopping Up procedure is in the context of public right of passage, which is established by Road Construction Consent. A Stopping Up Order removes the road area(s) from the register of public road and consequently removes the public right of passage. The Stopped Up areas must be physically grubbed up or closed off, e.g. with bollards, and street nameplates removed – i.e.
the area no longer is and no longer appears to be a road.
After the Stopping Up Order has been signed it is the responsibility of the developer, via their contractor or consultant, to inform the Council’s Land and Environmental Services (LES) at least a month in advance of the proposed date for physically Stopping Up each road area covered by the Order. This is to allow programming of works to remove public apparatus such as lighting columns, control pillars, barrier rail and bollards.
In addition, prior to the physical Stopping Up of a road area, the developer must provide a plan of the existing drainage / SuDS system, including all gullies. This plan will clearly demonstrate the proposed methodology of this removal, and that the removal will have no adverse effect on the surrounding LES and Scottish Water infrastructure, which will remain part of the publicly adopted road and drainage network.
