Works on the existing highway

Minor works permit

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

A minor works permit is for minimal works that do not involve electrical works.

Before you start any works, you must have a minor works letter and permit signed by us.

Approval process

  1. Contact us by emailing or call 01522 78270 to request the permit. We will then assess your request.
  2. If approved, we will post your permit to you.
  3. Work can only begin when you have received your permit.

Refused applications

If we cannot resolve any issues, we will refuse your application. We will return your paperwork.
