Providing your application has been granted preliminary consent, the process can take several weeks to complete.
Essex County Council will need to obtain full details of any street apparatus and utilities in the proposed vehicle crossing location; this is known as a ‘Stats Request’. Your application will be on hold until we’ve received this information, and we will provide you with an estimated timescale for how long your application is likely to take. Once this stage is complete, you will receive a copy of the Stats along with additional information for you to pass on to your contractor. Your contractor will then liaise with us to agree the start date.
On occasions there will be certain conditions that must be met by both you as the applicant and your chosen contractor. One of our inspectors will attend site following completion of the works to ensure these conditions have been met.
