Local authorities have powers to design and operate a permit scheme. This is to improve the management of works in the street undertaken by highway authorities and utilities companies. Details of East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Permit Scheme are available from this page.
What is the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) Permit Scheme for street works and roadworks?
East Riding of Yorkshire Council, as a Highway Authority, implemented a permit scheme on 1 December 2021 for works on the East Riding of Yorkshire highway network.
Taking into account our statutory duties, the scheme’s purpose is to:
Most road and street works on the public highway undertaken by (or on behalf of) utility companies, or by highways authorities themselves, will need permission through our permit scheme.
Works promoters must apply for a permit before commencing the works. We will consider the permit and approve or reject the application. In some cases conditions may be applied. A fee will apply. If we do not respond, a permit will be deemed to be approved.

If this takes place in non-traffic sensitive roads or times, they may have reduced fees.
If you are planning major works, you may also need to apply for a Provisional Advanced Authorisation (PAA). This allows significant works to be identified, co-ordinated and programmed in advanced by allowing works to be provisionally planned in before we consider granting a permit.
The PAA application:·
You will be charged for a PAA as well as major works permit, unless we have pre-agreed it with you.
Please note: if your PAA application is accepted, this does not necessarily mean your application for a major works permit will be accepted.
Standard works are planned to take 4 to 10 days.
Activities that last less than 10 days but need a traffic regulation order, such as a temporary road closure, or are part of your organisation's operating programme will be categorised as major activity and will need to follow the application process for a major activity.
