Hoarding / fence licence
If you plan to put up hoarding or fencing on any part of the public highway, you will need a licence from us.
You will need to complete the hoarding application form. You will receive an invoice for the fees.
You will need the following information:
- Location of hoarding
- How long you require a licence
- Copy of your public liability insurance which must be a minimum of £5 million will need to be submitted with the application form
Your completed application form can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The fee payable for applying for a hoarding licence is currently £81.00 per month (valid until 31st March 2022).
If your licence lapses you will be charged an out of date renewal fee of £143 per month (valid until 31/03/2022).
If you know that the works are going to take longer than 1 calendar month you can apply for a longer duration on the initial application. This can work out cheaper than applying for an extension each month.
All hoarding applications are invoiced to the contractor on a monthly basis.
Please note that our licence fees are subject to review every April and licences submitted after April 1st will be subject to any new fees.
A non-emergency application takes a minimum of 5 working days to process
An emergency application can be submitted if there is a danger to the general public. In this situation your contractor will need to submit the application form then attend site to begin erecting the hoarding.
