Scaffolding licence

You must not erect scaffolding without getting a licence first.

If you want to put scaffolding on a road, pavement, footpath, verge or alleyway, you must get a licence from the council.

How do I apply?

We only accept applications from scaffolding companies with £5 million public liability insurance. Individual members of the public can not apply for a scaffolding licence.

If you want to erect scaffolding on the road, pavement, footpath, verge or alleyway you must contact a scaffolding company who will apply for a licence on your behalf. They will contact us to arrange a permit for each road affected.

The scaffolding company should complete this application form and send it to the address on the form.

How much does it cost?

A scaffolding licence costs £45 and lasts for one month. If the scaffolding will be there for more than a month, you will have to apply for a new licence before the first one expires.

Please enclose a cheque made payable to Denbighshire County Council with your application form.
