A conundrum 1

A few months ago the LGO told me that the roadways on the development adjacent to my property were all adopted save for a small stretch outside my property. Today I decided to validate their assertion and carry out a search of Cheshire County Council's road adoption gazetteer [1]. All the roadways on the development in question are still shown as unadopted.

Therefore, we have a conundrum, are the roads adopted or unadopted? Either the LGO didn't bother to validate the true position of the roads or Cheshire County Council are failing in their statutory duty to keep an up to date gazetteer.

[1] Highway Authorities are statutory obliged to keep an accurate and up to date road adoption gazetteer. Cheshire County Council is the Highway Authority for this area.
