Traffic survey equipment licence

Apply for a licence to place traffic survey equipment on the highway.

1 Overview

Before undertaking a traffic survey in West Sussex, the data collection company must obtain a licence to place the survey equipment on the public highway.

This does not apply to roads that are not maintained by the council - for example, the A27 which is the responsibility of National Highways. The relevant maintaining authority must approve before placing any equipment on their highway.

We require a minimum of five working days' advance notice from the date of application to the date the traffic survey equipment will be installed.

A charge of £92.00 per street for the first 14 calendar days (or part thereof) is payable. Payment is made online.
