Works on the existing highway

To carry out highway works to comply with planning permission, you must enter into an agreement with us.

The highway includes:

  • carriageway
  • footway
  • verge and any other area between highway boundaries

The types of agreement to cover different levels of improvement works are:

  • a minor works permit for minimal works that do not involve electrical works
  • a unilateral agreement for minimal works that do involve electrical works
  • a Section 278 agreement for all other works
