Northumberland County Council is the Highway Authority for all roads in the Administrative County of Northumberland, with the exception of Trunk roads that are managed by National Highways.

The authority's area covers the vast majority of the Historic County of Northumberland, though not the areas of the Metropolitan Boroughs of Newcastle City Council and North Tyneside Council. Despite the full name the authority uses, it is technically a district council rather than a county council.
