Personal Searches

In accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 Hampshire County Council has prepared a guidance note about where to find the information required to answer highway personal search enquiries.

You may wish to carry out the highway search enquiries yourself, so the County Council has prepared a guidance note to help you find the information required for the CON29 form, in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004:

As an alternative to accessing the information yourself you may prefer to ask the County Council to research, collate and supply the answers to personal search enquiries on your behalf.

The County Council offers a full Con29R to personal search companies in respect of the highway questions. This service is identical to that provided to the district councils, in both service and cost. The fee is £18.65 and Personal Search Companies will be invoiced monthly. We will endeavour to turn searches around within 48 hours.

If you would like to use this service, please use the form below and email it to the address below. Please note, we will answer all the Con29R questions for the £18.65 fee. We are unable to answer individual questions. Please complete company's name and contact details and box B (the address of the property). Box C should only be used for other roads, rear accesses, etc which are immediately relevant to the property.
