The application has allowed us to create a works on a private street and send notices to an authority. Is this correct?
Which fields in the NSG gazetteer identify the street as being private?
The application will stop inspections being raised for works on a private street, however you may still be able to send notices for a works record in some circumstances.
Most street authorities still want to know when a works promoter is working on a private street.
Noticing will be possible if the ASD record for the private street, references a district within the authority which has a function of Street Authority or Permit Authority. If the authority want to stop notices being sent to them for a private street, they should set the district on the ASD record to reference a Transport Authority or Private Street Manager.
A street is normally declared as a private using the Road Status field on the Type 61 ASD record in the NSG Gazetteer. If the Road Status is 3, then it is defined as a private street. The maintainer district on the Type 61 ASD record also has an effect. If the mainainer district has a function of Street or Permit Authority then noticing will still be possible, however if any other function is declared then no notices can be sent for the street. To check the function of a district, c heck the OD Data declared in the Organisations and Districts form NSG0110.
Please see page 130 -132 of the EToN Technical Specification v6 for more detail on this.
The ETS states the following on page 164:Undertakers are required to serve copy notifications on the local primary notice authority when carrying out works in private streets. The local Highway Authority is responsible for creating the necessary (Additional Street Data) records to declare a “Primary Notice authority” interest in private streets within their area. http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/+/www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/roads/network/local/streetworks/cop/pdfelectronictransnotices.pdf
