The Council’s Streetworks Team coordinate road works, temporary highways licences and community events to ensure that congestion on the roads is kept to a minimum. We do this by controlling activities that may interfere with the free passage of vehicles and pedestrians on the Highway
If you wish to create a new access or make alterations to an existing access over a footway or verge you are required to create a vehicle crossing (dropped kerb).

A licence is required for non-excavation work within the highway, for example tree works, depositing materials or site facilities and traffic management.
