The Council’s Streetworks Team coordinate road works, temporary highways licences and community events to ensure that congestion on the roads is kept to a minimum.  We do this by controlling activities that may interfere with the free passage of vehicles and pedestrians on the Highway

If you wish to create a new access or make alterations to an existing access over a footway or verge you are required to create a vehicle crossing (dropped kerb).
