 A scaffolding licence costs £210 and is valid for a 3 month period. 

Further information

If we believe that the scaffold structure has damaged or altered the public highway in any way, any incurred costs in repairs will be recharged to the licence holder.  In some cases we may request a holding deposit.

We would recommend that for your own records photographs of the site are taken prior to the erection of the structure.

In many cases a site meeting will be required to discuss the impact of the structure upon the use of the highway, we therefore ask for as much advance notice as possible.
