Get permission for a skip on a highway

It is an offence to place a skip on the highway without a permit.

The skip supplier is responsible for getting a permit and making sure that the skip does not cause any obstruction to other road users.

You should make sure that your skip supplier has obtained a permit before accepting delivery of a skip onto the highway.

Skips placed on the highway must not contain any inflammable, explosive or noxious material, or anything which is likely to cause nuisance to highway users.

Contents of the skip must also be kept 'damped-down', or covered to prevent dust or spillage on the highway. The skip must not be overloaded and must be removed when full.
