Apply for a scaffolding/hoarding licence

You must complete this form and make a payment online if you propose to erect a scaffold and/or hoarding on the public highway.

We need 48 hours to process your application and issue a licence. You should make sure that you submit this application form at least 2 working days before the scaffold and/or hoarding is needed.

Scaffold/hoarding application fee

  • Application fee per licence: £76
  • Application fee per licence (Town Centre locations): £150

This is payable online when the application is made. Licences may be granted for up to 28 days and can be renewed for a further 28 days at an additional cost.

Fees apply per licence, so if you have applied for both a scaffold and a hoarding licence, you will need to pay 2 x application fee.
