Scaffolding licences

Scaffolding licences

If you are carrying out any building work or maintenance or you are removing any part of a property next to a public highway (road, pavement or rear lane) the safety of all highway users must protected. 

Safe areas must be provided at ground level or a platform at a high level. 

If you need to put hoardings on the highway around where you are working or on scaffolding, you must get permission from the council by completing the relevant forms. 

You should carefully read the conditions of the licence and follow them at all times.
