You will require this licence if you want to have the road adjoining your property permanently closed.
When a road is closed permanently, its status changes from 'road' to 'unallocated state land'. Depending on how the land is to be allocated, the area of road to be permanently closed may be:
- incorporated into the applicant's adjoining freehold or leasehold land
- included in an existing reserve or set apart as a new reserve
- dealt with by the issue of a term lease.
