Fed up with potholes – we are too!

Government funding cuts and pressures from other services such as social care means there isn’t enough money to pay for all the work which needs doing on our roads.

However, a new single council for Buckinghamshire would save at least £18m per year – money which the new council could decide to put into more road resurfacing.

Have your say - it only takes a minute !

Apply for a scaffolding licence

You need a licence to put up scaffolding on verges, footway, footpath and carriageways.

Your scaffolding company will apply on your behalf.

To make an application you need:

  • a copy of your insurance schedule which should include a minimum of £10 million public liability cover
  • a clear photo/map of the location

Online applications take approximately 3 minutes to complete.

Please note that your application will not be processed should you fail to submit the required supporting documents.  Failure to submit supporting information will cause delays and may affect your start date.

Applications will take approximately 4 weeks to complete (providing all documents are submitted).

The licence will be valid for 28 calendar days. A licence can only be renewed twice, after which, a new initial licence must be applied for.

If you are unsure if the area you wish to erect scaffolding is private or not, check the list of streets.
