Please note: BCS only deal with Scaffolding & Hoarding Licenses within the Wokingham Borough Council area. Applications within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and West Berkshire District Council areas should be referrred to the respective websites.

Hoardings licence

A hoardings licence is needed if you provide a hoarding to separate building work from a street. We may require a temporary footway outside the hoarding and hoarding lighting during the hours of darkness. Contact our BCS team to find out more.

Scaffolding licence

To build scaffolding on or over a road you'll need a licence from us. You'll need to consider traffic and pedestrians while the scaffolding is being erected and dismantled. Scaffolding can only be erected or dismantled in Wokingham town centre; before 8am or after 7pm Monday to Saturday, or during normal hours on Sunday.
