Licence Summary

If you wish to temporarily deposit building materials, rubbish or other items in a street or make a temporary excavation you must have consent from Aberdeen City Council.

You must comply with any conditions attached to a consent and comply with requirements relating to the fencing off and lighting of deposits or excavations.

There are two separate permit application forms for occupying parts of roads in connection with building operations:

  • Application to occupy part of a road in connection with Building Operations (Storage of Materials)

If spaces within a Car Parks and Parking Charges area are to be used then a further 30 per space per day (where applicable) for A, B, C, E, F & G shall be payable, 15 for all other zones.

Consumer Complaint

We would always advise that in the event of a complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the  UK European Consumer Centre.
