You can apply for a permanent or temporary road closure if you're an adjoining landholder. This means that you're the registered owner of the property that shares common boundary with the road.
You can apply to close the area of road that immediately adjoins the property boundary, but not any part of the road that continues in either direction beyond the property boundary.
You can’t apply for an entire road closure if you only have limited frontage to the road. You’re not considered an adjoining owner if the road is a ‘dead end’, and the property boundary only adjoins on the end and doesn’t extend along the road.

If we refused an earlier application and the reasons for the refusal have not changed, your application may not be considered.
