We have adopted two national codes of practice.
National Code for Utilities Access to the Transport Corridors
This is our policy and specifications document. The Code covers the requirements for working in and or occupation of roads within the local road network.
Further information is available in the National Code document:

Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management
This code ensures that all the basic information relating to the proposed works is available to our staff who are assessing the application.
It includes the timeframe for applications which allows time for any issues or queries to be addressed before work starts.
If this code does not cover the proposed work, the Temporary Traffic Management for Local Roads (Local Roads Supplement) is recognised as a suitable alternative.
Our staff are available to meet and discuss proposals before you submit your application.
