Scaffolding and hoarding licences

Application process

Please be aware that although we can accept your application online it would be helpful to ring the NRSWA team and talk through what is required because the situation can be quite complex. A check will be made to assess whether it is safe to place scaffolding in a particular location.

The Council requires a site plan showing the position of the scaffolding and/or hoarding to be attached with any application.

Does tacit consent apply?

No. It is in the public interest that we must process your application before it can be granted. If you have not heard from us within a reasonable period, please contact us again.

Submission of a form and payment does NOT mean permission has been granted and no scaffolding or hoarding may be put on the highway without a licence being granted first.
