Licence termination and removal of apparatus or structure

Question:
Licence termination and removal of apparatus or structure
Answer:

If apparatus or a structure is no longer required, the licensee must notify the highway authority and request that the licence is terminated. Before a licence is terminated, the apparatus or structure must be removed and the highway reinstated which would be carried out under a Section 171 permit to dig.

On receipt of an approval to terminate the licence, the chosen contractor carrying out the works will be required to apply for the Section 171 and only after the works are complete would the licence be terminated. As in the case of all Section 171 permits, the contractor will be responsible for the reinstatement of the highway for up to 3 years.
