Meet statutory legislation

The NSG was designed to improve the synchronisation of streetworks that have in the past been undertaken with little or no coordination.  It aims to prevent streets being repeatedly dug up over a period of months, by numerous different utility companies as well as local authorities.

The LSG enables your authority to meet a variety of statutory legislation, including:

  • Highways Act 1980

  • New Roads and Street Works Act 1991

  • The Street Works (charges for occupation of a highway) England 2001

  • The Street Works (Charges for Unreasonably Prolonged Occupation of the Highway) (England) Regulations 2001

  • Traffic Management Act 2004

  • The Street Works (registers, notices, direction, designations) England 2007
