We have recently reviewed the cost of licence fees for applications to work on the highway and for the provision of vehicle crossings over footways and verges. The review confirmed the cost of the licence fees have not kept pace with the costs for administration. Regrettably this is currently unsustainable. As such, the fees have been raised as detailed below.

The following charges apply to:

  • Application for minor works on or near the public highway – subject to planning conditions, for example, a waiting bay – £250.00
  • Application for minor works (involving excavations) on or near the public highway – £232.00
  • Application for the deposition of materials (including work equipment, building materials, rubbish and other things) – £50.00
  • Application for a vehicle crossings over footways and verges (Highways Act 1980, Section 184 Licence) – £218

We will also be making a number of improvements to the way we process licences. They can now be applied for and paid for online – making it quicker and easier to work on the highway network.
