- Road occupation licence
A road occupation licence is a permit to occupy the road in connection with building work.
If you wish to temporarily put building materials, scaffolding, hoarding, a cherry picker, rubbish or other items in a street or make a temporary excavation you must have consent from us as the highway authority.
You must comply with any conditions attached to a consent and any requirements relating to the fencing off and lighting of deposits or excavations.
- About this licence
A fee of £80 is required for granting a licence to erect scaffold or temporary hoarding or other similar temporary structure on the highway, for a maximum period of one month. We also require an anticipated date for removal.
If the period exceeds one month, you will need to apply for a new licence. If an extension is required, but still falls within one month of the erection date, you will not need to pay a further fee.
The cost for a retrospective application received after the scaffold is erected on the highway is £105 for one month.
Cheques should be made payable to Herefordshire Council.
