Query: Querying work outside home Question: Hello. I live on Diane Walk just outside Stoke Mandeville, and today we have a group of workers digging and dumping soil onto the green opposite our house. I would appreciate some insight into what works are being carried out as we had no prior notice of works here.
All planned work on the public highway (this includes the footpath) in Buckinghamshire, must apply for a permit from us as the local Highway Authority prior to any work starting.
However, there are occasions when work starts before a permit is issued for example emergency work such as a gas leak. The Utility company can start work which is why some are not shown on a href="https://www.">https://one.network/ " a> www.ONE.Network, but they must advise us within 2 hours of the start of the works. We will then ensure the works are added to the system.
A Highways Inspector will attend the site and/or contact the relevant Utility Company to ensure the conditions of the road permit licence are met.
