You need a licence to place a skip on a public highway (verge, path or road). You need to complete an application every time a skip is placed. This is a statutory requirement as specified in Section 139 of the Highways Act 1980.
We will ask companies that place a skip on the highway without a licence to remove the structure or apply for a licence immediately. We may also notify the police.
A licence is not required if the skip is to be placed on private property.
Minimum public liability insurance cover required for this application is £5m.
You can now pay for your licence using the online application form.
