Projections over the highway

What is a licence for projections over the highway?

A projection licence covers temporary projections over a highway, such as the boom of a crane and permanent projections, such as overhanging buildings or structures.

The owner of the proposed projection and/or the land on which the projection will be must apply for a licence. These licences are valid for as long as the projections remains in place.

Fees

  • £110 oversail licence first month

Oversail licences relate to any temporary projection over the highway. This includes windows, advertising boards, shop signs or banners as well as cranes whose jib extends across the highway, seasonal decorations, bunting etc. Permanent licence price on application.

For a licence to permanently oversail the highway, please contact us by letter detailing the nature of the oversail along with a drawing of the oversail and location plan. A price will be given on application.
