Road & Street Works Co-ordination
Under the New Roads & Street Works Act 1991, Fife Council is responsible for co-ordinating all utility work with their own roadworks to minimise congestion, delays and inconvenience.
The act is there to guide `statutory undertakers’ (basically utility companies like BT Open Space, Scottish Power and others) on what they must do if they need to dig up roads to maintain their systems or pipelines.
If you need to apply for permission to execute roadworks (NRSWA 109 permits) then you can apply online or the application form can be accessed from the publications section on this page.
