Street works

Information about working on the highway and licences and permits that may be needed, reporting issues, digging holes in public land and highways charges.

Where can I find out information about road works or street works?

All street works in the East Riding are displayed on the one.network website:

one.network - Road/Street Works East Riding

Please note: there should always be a sign on-site showing who is doing the work, how long it is expected to take and who to ring in case of an emergency. 

What should I do if I need to dig a hole in the road, footpath or verge?

If you need to dig a hole on publicly-maintained land, for example to install a new water pipe or another utility service, you must have a license AND a permit. Publicly-maintained land includes highways, footpaths, verges and cycleways.

Find out about the licences required, and how to apply.

Does the council have a list of highway charges?

There are a number of fees and charges for a variety of highway items which are reviewed every year. The majority of these fees will be charged to developers, businesses and a small number are relevant for residents. 

They can include:

  • vehicular accesses
  • H-bar markings
  • skip and scaffold licences
  • street works permits or licences
  • traffic regulation orders
  • provision of information
  • stopping up orders
  • salt bin provision or refills.
