National public consultations are carried out in accordance with the Government's Code of Practice on Consultation which came into effect on 1 November 2008.   This helps guide us on how to consult openly, inclusively and responsively. Consultation periods normally last at least 12 weeks, although there are circumstances in which shorter consultations will be unavoidable (for instance, where timescales are set out in law).

A draft (Partial) Regulatory Impact Assessment will be included as part of most national public consultations and where proposals may create burdens for business.

The Highways Agency applies the Government's Code to all consultations which are in the public domain, including public consultations on road projects, though application of the Code will be proportionate to the type of consultation taking place. Many of these local consultations are listed here alongside national consultations. However, if the consultation you are looking for is not listed here, please visit our Road Projects page.

If the consultation you are looking for is not on the website or if you think that the Government's Code of Practice on Consultation has not been followed in other ways, please email:

Final Regulatory Impact Assessments

A Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) is a tool which informs policy decisions. It is an assessment of the impact of policy options in terms of the costs, benefits and risks of a proposal.

It is government policy that all departments and agencies where they exercise statutory powers and make rules with a general effect on others should produce RIAs.

A final RIA is published alongside all legislation that imposes costs on, or realises benefits to, business, charities and the voluntary sector.

More information about Impact Assessments can be found on the Department for Business Innovation and Skills 
website.  Further information is also available on their website Scrutinising New Regulations. All central Government's Impact Assessments get published on the IA library.
