Road Design Procedures and Standards

New roads that are to be submitted for adoption to the List of Public Roads must be designed and constructed in accordance with the current Procedures and Design Standards. Information is available to assist private and public sector developers:

**May 2014 notice: Dropped Kerbs at Crossing Points

In order to facilitate safe and efficient access for all vulnerable road users, Moray Council has prepared a detailed drawing showing the specification required for the construction of Dropped Kerbs at Crossing points. The drawing is available to download/ view here. Developers should incorporate this layout into their Roads Construction Consent (RCC) applications.

Transportation Requirements for Small Developments in the Countryside

Moray Council has published new information for Small Developments in the Countryside and currently makes use of the Aberdeenshire Council Standards for Road Construction Consent and Adoption.

National Roads Development Guide

The National Roads Development Guide which was published in May 2014 has been produced by the Society for Chief Officers of Transport in Scotland (SCOTS) supported by Transport Scotland and Scottish Government Planning and Architecture Division. The SCOTS working group carried out consultation with all of the local roads authorities in Scotland as part of the preparation of a draft Roads Development Guide.

The new National Roads Development Guide supports the Scottish Government Planning Policy Designing Streets and expands on its principles to clarify the circumstances in which it can be used.

The NRDG forms part of the Designing Streets ‘Toolbox’ which is intended to help improve the efficiency, and delivery, of the Road Construction Consent and Planning process http://creatingplacesscotland.org/designing-streets

On the 19th May 2015 Planning and Regulatory Services Committee approved the use of the National Roads Development Guide as a material consideration in the determination of development proposals in Moray, subject to local variations.
