This code of practice gives guidance on inspecting street works including:
- investigatory inspections and works
- improvement plans
- fee arrangements
Inspections take place when works are:
- in progress, making sure appropriate signs and barriers are in place to protect workers and road users
- finished, making sure the site has been properly cleared and the road reinstated to a proper standard
Authorities have legal powers to recover a fee for various types of inspection as set out in The Street Works (Inspection Fees) (England) Regulations 2002.
