Grant/Relinquish Right-of-way Access

During the project development (entitlement or plan review) it might be necessary to:

  • acquire a new access to the project site from the adjacent right-of-way
  • close an existing drive or access to the adjacent right-of-way

Typically, unless shown on a map, the grant or relinquishment of access is shown on a drawing (exhibit) that is prepared on a (8.5" x 11") size sheet by a land surveyor licensed by the State of California and accompanied by a grant deed and legal description. The requirement for grant or relinquishment of access to right-of-way is a condition of approval from an approved discretionary action (land use permit or tentative map).
