Road and footpath closures for work on the highway

We will only agree to a highway closure if no other feasible solution can be found. You will not be granted a temporary highway closure to locate site accommodation or store materials on the highway.

You must ensure that delays are minimised and whenever practical you must:

  • maximise the working day e.g. working 24 hours/7 days a week
  • avoid closing the road at peak times
  • use traffic control to create lane closures rather than full road closures
  • use a suitable diversion route.

Please ensure that you have downloaded and read the guidance notes fully before you begin the application forms.

Application forms for a highway closure for works on the highway:

We will aim to respond to your application within 10 working days. If you have not had a response within this time, please contact us.

Construction works

If the development is to involve noisy construction works for a prolonged period the applicant is also requested to contact Environmental Protection to discuss the nature of the construction phase. The reasoning behind this is to establish a site contact and discuss appropriate working etc.
