Roads - Permission to Occupy

Highway Projection

Under the Roads Scotland Act 1984, section 59, a local authority is responsible for processing applications for licences as required for any display or temporary construction which may protrude or project over a public highway.

Skips Permits

If you propose to occupy or open part of a road, for example, carriageway, footway, footpath or cycle path, etc, there is a requirement under the Roads Scotland Act 1984 to obtain permission from the Local Roads Authority. This is done by applying with the form available from the Road Permit Applications page.
