Where planning permission is required:

You will have been advised by the District/Borough Councils that Planning Permission is required and a formal Planning Application must be submitted to the appropriate Planning Authority.  This is not something Worcestershire County Council can assist with.

Please phone the Worcestershire Hub on 0845 607 2005 and they will put you in touch with the appropriate Planning Authority.

Once you have received your Planning Permission, please telephone Worcestershire County Council when you will be asked for your Planning Permission number and site details.  Upon receipt of this information, we will send to you a licence to carry out the work, together with a list of County Council approved contractors.  This licence is valid for one year from the date of issue.

Only contractors from this approved list are permitted to carry out works.  In the event that an unauthorised contractor is used, the County Council will reserve the right to reconstruct the access and re-charge all costs incurred.

Once the licence has been granted, the applicant should contact a contractor from the County Council's list of approved contractors and agree a price to carry out the work. You will be required to give your reference number to the contractor.  It will then be up to the contractor to contact this authority to arrange a suitable time to carry out the work.  All contractors on this list are fully aware of the procedure.

Please note that the contractor will be required to give a minimum of five working days notice to this Authority of his intentions to carry out the work and gain the approval of the County Council.

If you require further information or assistance please contact the Worcestershire HUB on 0845 607 2005
