Highways permit scheme consultation

Devon County Council are moving forward with a permit scheme for carrying out work activity on the highway. Here you will find information about the this process.

  • All informal consultation roadshows have now been held. The purpose of these sessions was to raise awareness of the scheme and obtain feedback to help mould the scheme criteria. A good and varied attendance from many different stakeholders was received – thank you. For all those who were unable to attend, please see the presentation attached on the below link.

    Informal Stage Workshop Presentation

    We were able to capture a lot of relevant information that we need to disseminated as part of this process. However, if you have thought of any relevant points or questions since your roadshow attendance, please feel free to follow up by emailing us at highway.permitscheme-mailbox@devon.gov.uk.

  • The Legal TRO consultation started in September 2019 and should hopefully be completed during October 2019.

  • Following the consultation, the scheme is planned to go live in March 2020.

  • Informal consultation stage took place between May and July 2019. Please see the presentation under the Preliminary Consultation or Documents options. If you have any feedback, please email us at highway.permitscheme-mailbox@devon.gov.uk
