Highway licences

start content

If you intend to do any work on the highway (either road or pavement) you must obtain a licence.

These activities include:

  • placing skips on the highway
  • putting up or dismantling scaffolding or hoarding
  • placing cranes, cherry pickers and mobile platforms on the highway
  • using temporary traffic signals
  • using the pavement for business purposes (such as chairs and tables)

We also issue licences to excavate in the highway, and to place or repair apparatus in the highway.

Our Streetworks team issues Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders for road closures or parking prohibitions for roadworks and events.
