Application Forms

Important Update

From 2nd April 2024 we will introducing our new system to process the below licence applications:

  • Scaffold
  • Skips
  • Hoarding
  • Plant
  • MEWPS, Cranes, Cherry Pickers
  • S184- Vehicle dropped kerbs

All other licences will follow in due course.

On first application you will need to create a customer account. If you are a business, you can add multiple users to your one account.

The new system will improve the experience for applying and tracking your licence applications, with a few key points below:

  • You will be able to view all pending/active and expired licences within your account.
  • You will only need to upload your Public Liability documents to your account annually as the system will hold the expiry dates.
  • You can apply for multiple licences and pay upon check-out at the end. This means all applications will revert back to requiring payment on submission.

Dropped Kerbs

The way we handle s184 (vehicle dropped kerb) applications is changing. We will be publishing details in due course.

Tables and Chairs/Traders

From 22 July 2020 Under the Business and Planning Act 2020 Temporary Pavement Licences can be applied for through your local District and Borough Councils. Please contact the relevant District/Borough Council for further information. East Sussex Highways Tables and Chairs licences can still be applied for. We advise you review both licence types as they have different terms and conditions and choose the one best suited for your business needs.
