For street, sidewalk and/or public lane closures, a detailed letter outlining how the public right of way is to be used, including the duration of the closure, together with a proposed work schedule, must be submitted with your application.
Street occupation permit fees are based on the type of permit required and the duration of the work. Permits must be obtained in person and must be paid for when they are issued. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding the fees which must accompany your application.
