Under a Permit Scheme those responsible for road and street works will have to apply for permission before they start the work, apart from emergency work where they have to apply for a permit within 2 hours.

Cambridgeshire County Council will grant, refuse or tailor the application; taking into considerations works already in progress and demands on the network. The permit will have a list of specific conditions that the utility companies and their workforce have to adhere to. These may include working hours or the way they control the traffic around the works to benefit the highway users.

The scheme has been developed in compliance with the Department for Transports Guidance and National Condition Text.
