Road opening licence
The area offices deal with the issuing of road opening licences. A "road" includes footpaths, verges and carriageways.
A road opening licence is required for:
- Connection to water main
- Connection to sewer
- Pipelaying etc.
Clare County Council requires that any person/company who wishes to open up a section of public road or footpath obtain a road opening licence before carrying out any work. This is to ensure that all openings carried out are reinstated properly and are therefore safe for public use.
