Highways Policies, Strategies and Plans

6. Licensing and enforcement Policies

We have a duty to control the obstruction of the highway so as to minimise the inconvenience and danger to users.

We can issues licences for a variety of items in the highway such as posters, A-boards, skips etc. and can remove unauthorised obstructions on the roads or pavements that we are responsible for.
