Skip companies must, by law, apply to the Council for a permit to place a skip on the public footway, grass verge or road.
We need at least three working days' notice to deal with an application for a permit.
A skip permit costs £41.60 and lasts for 28 days. This fee is non-refundable even if we have to refuse the application.
If a skip is needed for longer than 28 days, the company will have to apply again before the permit runs out and there will be another fee of £41.60 to cover a further 28 days.
We only allow skips to be placed in residential parking areas or parking meter bay(s) if there is no other site.;
Skip companies should note that there is an extra fee of £41.60 if we have to inspect a skip on site that doesn't comply with the terms of the permit.
Please note that we only accept applications from Skip Companies.
Individuals requiring a Skip Permit should arrange for the permit to be issued through their chosen Skip Company.
