Any organisation or individual wishing to place, retain, and afterwards inspect, maintain, adjust, repair, alter or renew apparatus in the highway must obtain a licence from the highway authority.
Popular tasks right now
If you wish to apply for a licence, please contact the authority via email at email@example.com or phone 0345 600 6400. The works are assessed by the Streetworks team who will discuss any issues with the applicant.
Applications can be processed in four working weeks and will normally be completed once the dates for carrying out the work have been confirmed. The applicant may have to give up to three months' advance notice of the work, depending on its duration and impact on traffic.
The highway authority may request an alternative location for the proposed apparatus if it is considered that during the installation or any future maintenance, significant traffic disruption may occur.
Please also note:
If you require any additional information, please speak to the Streetworks team.
The highway authority maintains a register of Section 50 licences which have been issued. If you wish to view this, please contact us to make an appointment during office hours.
