A licence is needed to erect scaffolding and hoardings on roads, pavements or public alleyways.

The scaffolding or hoarding company will apply for the licence, so customers do not need to contact us directly.

To apply for a licence complete the permission to erect a scaffold/hoarding on the highway form

Once completed return the form to the traffic manager with a copy of Public Liability Insurance which must have a minimum cover of £5 million. We will then arrange a site inspection.

If your application is approved you will be sent a confirmation letter and invoices for charges due.

We require 5 to 7 days’ notice prior to the erection of the scaffolding or hoarding.
