Licensing & Permits

Temporary works

Works of a temporary nature (such as scaffolding to facilitate redecoration and/or repair works to river walls) require a licence unless they are non intrusive in which case the written consent of the PLA is required.

If you are proposing to undertake temporary works and as a result of undertaking those works less than 50m3 of dredging would be required then it will be possible to licence this de-minimis dredging when the temporary licence is issued.

The PLA aims to process temporary applications within one month of receiving a valid application. An application will only be valid upon receipt of all of the required documentation. If less than one months’ notice is provided, we reserve the right to charge an additional administration fee to process an application, but please be aware that a particular timeframe cannot be guaranteed.
