E-Skips Online Permit Applications
Please note that this site requires active scripting to be enabled.
e-Skips provides an online application system for skip permits. It allows real time
data exchange between Skip Operators and Kent County Council, thereby helping
to make both parties work more efficiently. The system automatically provides data
to the Elgin (Electronic Local Government Information Network) website which is
available to the public to check whether or not the skip on their road has had a
permit applied for etc… A permit is required for any skip placed on the highway.
The skips must conform to a given specification and can be removed if they are placed
without a licence. Further details are available in the skip permit below (downloadable
e-Skips will also allow the skip companies, once registered, to manage their permits
and finances with more ease. Permits can either be paid for at the time or added
to a monthly statement – which can then be paid off fully or in parts at any time
during the month. The clear operating system will also make it easier to see when
permits are due to expire, and to renew them in real time so that the skip remains
licensed on the public highway.
We hope that this system will not only benefit the skip companies, but KCC’s co-ordination
of works on the highway. Through systems like e-Skips we aim to cut congestions
on Kent’s roads and to efficiently co-ordinate all users of the highways needs.
Ideally 5 working days should be allowed for processing of permits.
