Highways Enquiries

We are no longer the agent for the Highway Authority.  Highways related questions on the search forms are answered by Surrey County Council's Highway Information Team. There is an additional fee for each search and this fee is included in our overall search cost.  The County Council will only answer additional enquiries (i.e. those not printed on the CON forms) if these are submitted direct to them.  Please contact them direct for pricing details by visiting the Surrey County Council  website.

Drainage Enquiries

Thames Water Utilities have responsibility for drainage enquiries.  Please contact them direct for details.
