Permit Scheme Overview.
Permit Activity Categories.
Permit schemes were introduced by Part 3 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA) to improve authorities’ abilities to minimise disruption from street and highway works.
Permit Schemes provide a new way to manage activities in certain streets in the Public Highway.
Yorkshire Common Permit Scheme
NRSWA Section 98(2)
For the purposes of administration of the Permit Scheme ‘Working Day’ means a day other than a Saturday or Sunday, Christmas Day or Bank Holiday; and for the purpose of this permit scheme, a working day will be treated as
08:00 to 16:30
The scheme will cover all streets which are:
Non registerable activities:
part of a programme.
(Not a Temporary Traffic Notice).
planned duration of between 4 and 10 working days
planned duration of 3 working days or less.
imminent which can cause damage to people or property.
Urgent Activities – (Not being Emergency Works)
be under civil or criminal liability if delayed.
Any activity promoter who wishes to carry out any activity requiring registration in a permit street must obtain a permit from the Permit Authority.
The permit allows the promoter to carry out the specified activity:
Permit application required a minimum of ten working days before the proposed start date.
Permit application required at least three working days before the proposed start date.
Permit application required within two hours of the works commencing (for out-of-hours, within 2 hours of the start of the following working day).

Regulations provide provisions for permit authorities to attach conditions to permits and specify the types of conditions which may be attached.
They may also specify certain conditions which apply to works before a permit is obtained i.e. for immediate activities
The range of conditions that can be applied to permits will fall under the following categories:
e.g. provision for vulnerable people
to be carried out.
For all works, it is a requirement that the permit reference number, when issued, must be prominently displayed on the site information board at all times.
Where planned activities have the potential to be especially disruptive to local residents, businesses and/or road users, Permit Authorities can request a condition requiring the promoter to provide advanced notice to nearby householders or businesses, or to drivers or pedestrians using the road.
That is, outside of 8am – 6pm, Monday – Friday, and 8am – 1pm on Saturday (section 60: Control of Pollution Act, 1974).
Changing circumstances, for either an activity promoter or for the Permit Authority, may require permits and/or the conditions attached to them to be varied.
(incl. extensions of duration)
Permit Go Live Date
A requirement for permit schemes is to ensure that authorities apply a consistent approach to all activities and activity promoters, demonstrating parity of treatment.
Another requirement is to demonstrate the success of the permit scheme in meeting its objectives
Equality will be measured through KPIs. Permit Authorities will produce an annual set of KPIs that identify the treatment of individual promoters which will be published.
A series of measures designed to track delivery of the anticipated benefits will be established. These measures will be subject to periodic reviews (at least annually) in consultation with activity promoters.
The number of permit and permit variation applications received, the number granted and the number refused.
The number of conditions applied by condition type.
The proportion of approved extensions.
The number of agreements to work in section 58 and section 58A restrictions.
The percentage of PAA, permits and applications cancelled
Minimising delay and reducing disruption to road users arising from street and road works activity.
