Building materials storage licence
If you wish to store building materials on the public highway, you will need to contact us in advance to obtain a licence.
If a builder is doing work on your house, it is your responsibility to ensure they have a licence for materials storage.
If you have not heard from us within two working days, please contact us, but you cannot act as if your application has been granted until you hear from us.
If you wish to appeal against a decision you may do so to the local Magistrates' court
Using parking bays
If a skip is to be placed in a controlled parking zone (CPZ) location, then parking must be contacted to suspend the bays

Email the form to email@example.com or post it to Unit 20-22, Whitby Avenue, Park Royal, NW10 7SF.
When you have a licence, you and your builder are responsible for ensuring that the materials are stored according to our standard conditions and guidelines, and following the Highways Act 1980.
You are not allowed to block access to public highways, or to damage or stain public ground.
