Accredited contractors

We cannot recommend a particular contractor but there is a List of Accredited Contractors (DOC, 70.5 KB), who we believe to be qualified, insured and have previously demonstrated their competence in carrying out this type of work.

However, you retain the right to employ a contractor of your own choice subject to conditions that will be explained at the next stage of the application process, should your initial application be approved.

It is a requirement that the contractor has Public Liability Insurance to a minimum cover of £5 million and is accredited under the New Road and Street Works Act 1991 to work within the public Highway.
