Any scaffolding or hoarding which encroaches or projects over the highway requires a scaffold permit. These permits are only issued to the scaffolding company. Please ask your scaffolder to contact us.
Scaffolding or harding contractors must have a licence to erect a scaffolding or hoarding on any part of the adopted highway network. Permits are issued directly to the scaffolding company who must also hold public liability insurance for a minimum of £5 million as you'll be responsible for any third party claims that may arise.
Annual registration fee: £120
Please note that any scaffolding or hoarding that is erected without a permit is in breach of the Highways Act 1980 and shall be removed immediately.
