Fees and applications
We have powers to make temporary or permanent alterations to Shropshire’s roads. While some of these alterations are required for statutory reasons, others are at our discretion.
In the discretionary category, traffic management alterations to the roads are managed by our local traffic teams. They have the powers to place permanent restrictions or information on the roads. These can include, for example, 'H bar' markings across your driveway to reduce obstruction and maintain access, double yellow lines to prevent parking, tourist information signs for businesses and automatic traffic counters for investigatory purposes.
In line with many other highways authorities, we now charge for these discretionary services. However, there's no charge for non-profit making organisations.
Rather than calculating the cost for each application, we've tried to simplify the process for you by averaging costs across the various types of work. Please refer to the standard charges section on this page which gives details of charges applicable.
If you are applying for a tourism sign, please ensure you read the tourism signs policy before applying.
