Skips and highways licences
We issue licences to skip companies to deposit skips on public highways. We also issue licences for erecting scaffolding, hoarding and fencing, for excavating the footway or carriageway, for storing building materials, and for depositing portable cabins and containers.
Skip companies must apply for a licence before depositing any skips on a public road or highway. Companies must have registered with us before we are able to process any applications for individual skips.
Construction companies or contractors undertaking works which will require use of public roads or highways (including footpaths and main carriageways) will need to apply for a relevant licence before commencing their works.
