Easements and rights of way

What is an easement?

An easement is a right over land that is granted for the benefit of other land or a public body, generally authorising access to and / or use of the land for a particular purpose.

Easements can be created for a variety of purposes such as pedestrian or vehicular access, stormwater drainage, water and electricity supply and sewerage purposes. The majority of easements dealt with under this policy are likely to be those for stormwater drainage.
