Matthew White advises on the creation of highways by express dedication

St John’s Chambers Barrister, Matthew White has been asked to advise The Trails Trust on the creation of highways by securing the express dedication of the landowner.

The Trails Trust is a charity with an interest in the development of a network of highways (typically bridleways) across England and Wales. The Trust has asked Matthew to publish the advice online and it can be found here. It covers what a highway is (including its essential characteristics), and how to determine whether a right of way exists (looking at dedication and acceptance).

Matthew will be speaking on the issues covered in the advice at the Institute of Public Rights of Way Conference on 17 October 2017.

If you would like to instruct Matthew on a related matter, please contact his clerks on 0117 923 4730 or e-mail  .
