Road closure request

It is advisable that pre-application checks are made by yourself to ensure that the proposed road closure application will not affect or be affected by any other work or event in the locality. We will monitor, and coordinate works carried out by the activity promoters to limit the amount of disruption to road users.

We deal with any temporary road closure applications for activities which require temporary traffic management, such as roadworks and events. Road closures need to be applied for and go through an approval process. This will have a lead time of 12 weeks.

To apply for permission to close a road, to prevent vehicles and/or pedestrians using it, complete an application form.

You must -

  • include an OS plan showing the location of the closure
  • include a scale map showing diversion routes and signs you intend to use
  • return your completed form (and plans) to the Permit Team
  • allow at least twelve weeks notice before the required closure for us to process, consult and advertise the notice
  • contact the Permit Team for further advice

Email your completed application form to -
