2023 Permit for Works Scheme Consultation (closed)

DCC will now proceed to mobilise the changes for 1 April 2023.

The detail below is now provided for information only.

Devon County Council is running a consultation on fee levels for street works permits which are required by those who work on its road network.

In 2021 we reduced our fee levels to ensure the scheme operated within cost neutral obligations. It was acknowledged that such a reduction would be time constrained as the fee levels were reduced to below the scheme’s operating costs.

We now proposes a return to the original year one permit fees to ensure its obligations continue being met.

The consultation will run for 4 weeks from 1 February 2023.

All changes are proposed to be effective from 1 April 2023.
