No waiting cones (traffic cones) can be used to prevent parking on a temporary basis so building works or roadworks can take place.

Complete a no waiting cones application form to apply for permission to use no waiting cones on the road, footways or verge; return the form to our Traffic Management Team.

You must apply 3 weeks before you need to use the cones - for more urgent requests, contact the Traffic Management Team by telephone.

Cost of no waiting cones

Permission to use no waiting cones costs £177.

The cost of supplying cones will depend on the size of the restricted area, and length of time required.

We'll invoice you after the works have been completed.

Tacit consent

Not all applications fall under tacit consent parameters, due to reasons of public interest.

If tacit consent applies, then you can act as if your application has been granted if we do not respond within a specified time after the confirmed receipt of your application.

Tacit consent does not apply to this application, therefore it is in the public interest that we process your application before it can be granted.

  • you cannot assume permission will be given
  • we will contact you within 5 days to acknowledge receipt of your application
  • if you have not heard from us within 5 days please contact us to check the status of your application
