Oxfordshire Permit Scheme Consultation

Road Works in Oxfordshire

Part 3 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 and The Traffic Management Permit Scheme (England) Regulations 2007 gives local authorities powers to design and operate a permit scheme to improve the management of works in the street undertaken by highway authorities and utilities companies. Oxfordshire County Council proposes to exercise these powers to introduce a system of permits for street works and road works.

In simple terms, the Permit Scheme will require permission to be obtained for most road and street works, whether they are undertaken by or on behalf of utility companies or highway authorities themselves.

The consultation is primarily aimed at highway works promoters, utility companies and their regulators. However, responses are welcomed from anyone with an interest. If you have any suggestions of others who may wish to be involved in the consultation process, please let us know.

Please read the documents below before completing the questionnaire.

Once this consultation process is complete and the responses collated and considered, any changes made in the light of the consultation will be considered within one month after the consultation closes which is at midnight on 23rd August 2019.
