Streetworks Early Start Requests
The ‘Code of Practice for the Co-ordination of Street Works and Works for Road Purposes and Related Matters’ Chapter 8 notes that works must not start before the expiry of the notice period, except where an early start has been agreed with the street authority.  All early starts are subject to the agreement of the street authority with contact being made by the utility/promoter to the street authority.

In order that we manage and coordinate works on our network we require anyone working on our highway to ensure that they comply with this Code of Practice.

Contact can be made direct to the  streetworks admin team streetworks@newcastle.gov.uk giving details of your notice number, location and any justification for this request- please be aware that any early start requested will be investigated and a response sent to you.
