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.
Please note that payment will need to be paid in advance of any application being approved. Please ensure you plan your works correctly, giving a minimum of two weeks’ notice to ensure payment can be processed in full.
