Overview

Who can apply

Only skip companies can apply for a skip permit

A permit is required if you wish to place a builder's skip on any part of the highway.

Notice period for a skip permit

A minimum notice period of 5 working days is required prior to the start date of the permit when submitting a new application.  Do not include bank holidays in the 5 working days notice period.
Applications received with the same day start date or a short notice period will be rejected and fees non-refundable. Renewals require a minimum 1 working day notice.

The submission of a licence request does not automatically grant permission to place a skip on the road.

A licence application is submitted for consideration only and needs to be approved by the council before permission is granted. Please ensure the application is approved.

A licence can be refused if an officer deems the location to be unsuitable or dangerous.
