South Gloucestershire Permit Scheme for Road Works and Street Works

Part 3 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 and The Traffic Management Permit Scheme (England) Regulations 2007 gives local authorities powers to design and operate a permit scheme to improve the management of works in the street undertaken by highway authorities and utilities companies. South Gloucestershire Council proposes to exercise these powers to introduce a system of permits for street works and road works.


In simple terms, the Permit Scheme will require permission to be obtained for most road and street works, whether they are undertaken by or on behalf of utility companies or highway authorities themselves.


The consultation is primarily aimed at highway works promoter, utility companies and their regulators but responses are welcomed from anyone with an interest. If you have any suggestions of others who may wish to be involved in the consultation process please let us know.


Once this consultation process is complete and the responses collated and taken into account, any changes made in the light of the consultation will be considered within one month after the consultation closes which is 6 weeks from today 26th July 2019. The Permit Scheme will then be put into place for 1st October 2019.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • All residents
