Cork City Council's Corporate Plan identified the following objective: -
"To control and manage the Road Space in a balanced way by strict monitoring, control and licensing of installations on footpaths and roads, to minimise clutter, obstructions and hazards to road users."
Roads are not for the sole use of vehicles but also service the needs of pedestrians, able-bodied and physically/sensory impaired. We all benefit from the unobstructed and safer footpaths and roads.Strict licensing regulations apply to all wishing to erect scaffolding/hoarding. place skips, furniture or signs on the public road. Cork City Council Roads Directorate have responsibility for issuing, monitoring and enforcing these licenses. Non compliance and breach of regulations may lead to prosecution.Cork City Council wishes to acknowledge the high level of compliance with the relevant regulations in the majority of cases.
However, if you notice any breaches of the rules governing public footpaths and roads safety listed in the following leaflet, then please telephone: 021 4924(798 or 189) and help make Cork a safer city for us all.
