Licence for crane overhanging the highway

​​​​You must get​ a licence before placing a crane overhanging the highway.

This service will be unavailable on Sunday 19 January from 8pm for up to 4 hours. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes. 

A charge of £250 will be made to consider this application

It is a serious offence to place anything over a highway without our permission​. If cranes are overhanging the highway without a licence we will, as the local Highway Authority, prosecute the crane company.​
