Permit to place items and skips

What is a permit to place items on the highway?

For skips and building materials on the highway, an application for a permit to place items on the highway is required.

If your permit application is approved it will allow you to place large or bulky items on the public highway, such as:

  • skips used for non-hazardous waste
  • 'hippo' bags or other bags for non-hazardous waste
  • builders materials if appropriately secured in bags or wrapped materials on pallets
  • unfixed temporary items specifically agreed by us

Please note: If you are just dropping off bricks or other materials and then moving them off the highway onto private land you will not need a permit.

Fees

A permit will cost £35. Permit capped to 7 calendar days maximum on a classified (A, B, C) road and capped to 14 calendar days maximum elsewhere (or part thereof). We will aim to get your permit to you within 5 working days.

A renewal of permit (extension) will cost £35. Permit capped to 7 calendar days maximum on a classified (A, B, C) road and capped to 14 calendar days maximum elsewhere (or part thereof).

Apply

Applications must be made by the company delivering and placing the item or skip. Your company must be registered with us to place materials, skips or other items on the highway.

Before applying please read the placement of items application conditions.

Please email nmu@staffordshire.gov.uk for further information and guidance.
