Scaffold and hoarding permit

What is a scaffold and hoarding permit?

A permit is needed for any scaffolding or hoarding that needs to be placed on the highway, it does not control the standard in which the scaffold or hoarding is put up, this remains the responsibility of the applicant.

Wherever possible, a scaffold or hoarding must be placed on private property. Where applications are received and it is clear on inspection that sufficient room is available on private land, the application will be refused but is still chargeable. Sufficient room on private land is determined by ourselves and is not negotiable.

 


 

Fees

There are two types of permit that can be applied for:

  • Domestic building permits cost £113 for the first month and the same again for each additional month.
  • Commercial building permits cost £149 for the first month and the same again for each additional month.

 


 

Application conditions

Please read the application conditions before applying for this permit.

 


 

Apply

Applications must be made by the company who is placing scaffolding or hoarding. Your company must be registered with us to apply for a scaffolding or hoarding permit.

In the case of scaffolds, the company working on the scaffold must also be insured in the same way as the applicant. If approved, the item owner carries all of the responsibilities in adhering with regulations, standard conditions and any special conditions that may be applied to the permission.

Please email nmu@staffordshire.gov.uk if you deem the scaffold to be required for emergency works to a property, you should contact the team directly and not complete an online application form.

We aim to get the permit to you within 10 working days.
