What happens next

If your application is not processed by the authority within the timescales stated tacit consent will not apply. This means that there is a risk to public safety through inappropriate use of the highway, so it is in the public interest that the local authority must process your application before it can grant a permit. If we have not contacted you by the end of the target completion period, please get in touch with us. You can do this online if you applied through GOV.UK or contact the Regulatory Service.​

If that has not worked and you are located in the UK,  Citizens Advice consumer service will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
