Skip permits

If you would like to put a skip on a road, you must get a permit from us.

Apply for a skip permit

We only give skip permits to companies on our approved skip company list, not directly to the public. 

You will need to contact a skip company from our list of approved providers. You should allow 24 hours for the permit to be processed.

Both parties must comply with the terms of the licence.

You can leave building materials on the road, if you get permission from us.
 
 

When skips are not allowed on the road

We may not give you permission to put a skip on your road. The decision to give permission is made by our officers. 

Putting a skip on the road without permission

If you put a skip on a road without a permit, you are committing an offence and we can give you a fixed penalty fine of £150 or, in more serious cases, we can take you to court and you could be fined up to £1000.
