Permit scheme for roadworks

South Gloucestershire Permit Scheme for roadworks and streetworks

Part 3 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 and The Traffic Management Permit Scheme (England) Regulations 2007 gives local authorities powers to design and operate a permit scheme, to improve the management of work in the street undertaken by highway authorities and utilities companies. We exercise these powers in order to manage a system of permits for roadworks and streetworks.

In simple terms, the Permit Scheme requires permission to be obtained for most road and street works, whether they are undertaken by or on behalf of utility companies or highway authorities themselves.

Further details of the scheme and a table of fees are available from the downloads section of this page.
