Ramps / guardrails / bollards

Question:
Ramps / guardrails / bollards
Answer:

In some cases it may be necessary for private individuals to place a permanent structure in the highway such as a ramp (where provision for accessing premises is required), guardrail (often associated to ramps) and bollards. All permanent structures require a Section 50 licence and each ‘structure’ or item must carry its own licence. Such licences run for an undetermined period and therefore should be updated during land transfers to ensure that new landowners take responsibility for the apparatus and are aware of their obligations.

The granting of a licence for permanent structures are assessed on an individual basis and may be refused if the structure is likely to cause an obstruction to highway users or other organisations requiring access to the highway.
