Apply for a highways permit or licence

Please be advised that our Streetworks Service are currently unable to accept postal applications or payments by cheque.

Continue to submit your application by email and we will contact you directly to advise the payment methods available to you.

Roads and pavements should be kept clear and safe as much as possible. Sometimes work and events mean that a highway may need to be closed or partially closed. This requires a licence.

Some applications can be done online and for others you will need to download the form and post it back to us.

If you have any questions before completing an application please call us on 03000 41 81 81.
