Information about, and application form for, a streetworks licence


If a closure is required a diversion route may need to be signed to assist traffic to find a suitable way around the closure and to minimise disruption.

The cost of installing, maintaining and removing diversion route signing is usually the responsibility of those organising the work.

The cost will vary depending on the type of work.

The minimum notice period is ten weeks. In all cases the diversion must be agreed in advance with us and the police.
