Section 38 Agreement Northamptonshire

April 12, 2021 at 5:39 am

Northamptonshire Highways will not be able to enter into a Section 38 agreement until a Section 104 agreement has been reached with the Water Service and a copy of this Section 104 agreement has been received by the developer of the NCC site. To do this, please email highwayadoptions@northamptonshire.gov.uk. Visit the site in Section 38 of the agreement to learn more. Copy contracts can take up to 7 business days to be made available to you from the time payment is received. The agreement is also guaranteed by a loan or financial payment which the road authority may benefit from in certain circumstances, for example. B if the developer goes bankrupt or goes into liquidation before the roads are completed. As a general rule, we will only process a Section 38 request for agreement when the plan has been established for “full or reserved issues.” A Section 38 agreement should be concluded and submitted by the proponent of the work. To request a copy of an agreement, call 01604 367988 or 01604 367036 or email legal.admin@lgsslaw.co.uk copies of the above agreements are managed by LGSS Law (Northamptonshire Highways). Sometimes there may be delays in the completion of the road adoption, this could be because the developer starts building before the conclusion of section 38 of the agreement, attempts to change the standard conditions of Section 38 of the County Council agreement, the road is built slowly or unfinished, the road is not built according to regional council standards, there may be problems with the acceptance of sewers under the new road, the road may be ready, but there may still be outstanding construction defects to correct the developer. This can include things like faulty streetlights, potholes, overgrown edges, broken discharge blankets.

Large constructions, including a large road and pedestrian network, are often divided into phases, with a separate S38 agreement for each phase, sometimes with different developers. This scenario is the biggest challenge in defining road construction and completion rates, as developers are often under pressure to build and sell homes in normal order due to the demand for markers. Different developers build at different speeds and not all stretches of road inside a building can be completed one after the other. For a section of road to be accepted, it must be connected to another section of the highway. This can sometimes lead to the completion of road sections to appropriate standards, but will only be accepted when the sections of road that connect them to the supposed highway are also completed to an acceptable standard. Assuming that proponents have not made sufficient progress to facilitate the roadworks adoption process, a formal notification may be sent to the proponent within the time frame set out in the agreement, to demonstrate that roadwork completion is actively unseating and that borrowing can be used. If the developer does not move the work satisfactorily in accordance with the agreement, the motorway authority will always try to resolve the problem first through negotiation. If this is not the case, road authorities will have the option of requesting the loan to pay for the completion of the motorway works. When we receive an application, we will verify that we identify the legal agreements relating to the property and inform you of the cost of making those copies available. Please note that due to major projects related to the legal agreement, it is generally not possible to provide copies of these documents electronically. Please visit Section 38 Contract Copies to find out how to get copies. The adoption of Section 38 allows the promoter to enter into a legal agreement with the road authority to ensure the final adoption of a new departmental road.

The agreement contains a framework of clauses, including the duration of road construction, responsibility for the maintenance and repair of the road before acceptance, payment of royalties and royalties from the country
