You need a licence to fix hoarding or scaffolding on or next to a road.
A hoardings licence is needed if you provide a hoarding to separate building work from a street.
We may require a temporary footway outside the hoarding and lighting the hoarding during the hours of darkness.
Contact our building control team to find out more.
To build scaffolding on or over a road you'll need a licence from us.
You'll need to consider traffic and pedestrians while the scaffolding is being erected and dismantled.
Scaffolding can only be erected or dismantled in Wokingham town centre before 8am or after 7pm Monday to Saturday, or during normal hours on Sunday.
