Streetworks Permit Scheme

Background

Part 3 of the Traffic Management Act (TMA) 2004 introduced Permit Schemes as a new way in which activities in the public highway could be managed and to improve Authorities’ ability to minimise disruption from road and street works. This Permit Scheme is known as the Newcastle City Council Road Activities Permit Scheme or hereby known within this document as the “Permit Scheme”.

Promoters should make themselves aware of the content of Part 3 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 (“TMA”) (Sections 32 to 39) and the Traffic Management Permit Scheme (England) Regulations 2007 (“the 2007 Regulations”), Statutory Instrument 2007 No. 3372 made on 28 November 2007, as amended by the Traffic Management Permit Scheme (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2015, Statutory Instrument 2015 No. 958 made on 26 March 2015 (“the amendment regulations”) and the 2007 Regulations and the Amendment Regulations are hereinafter referred to together as “the Regulations”.

Due regard has also been had to the Statutory Guidance for Highway Authority Permit Schemes October 2015 as well as the Statutory Guidance for Highway Authority Permit Schemes – Permit Scheme Conditions March 2015 and their successors.

In preparing the Permit Scheme Newcastle City Council has undertaken a full consultation with all relevant stakeholders as required under the regulations.
