London Skip Permit Fees
How much does a skip permit in London cost?
The cost of a skip permit (or skip license) in London varies from £30 to £165 depending on the borough. The average fee is £68. A permit typically lasts 1 or 2 weeks. It is issued by the council and required if you place a skip on a public highway. Below is a table showing the exact price for every London borough with a link to the relevant page on their website with more details.
In addition to a skip permit fee, if you are putting the skip in a part of the road that has permitted parking, you will also have to pay for a parking bay suspension / CPZ suspension. CPZ suspension fees also vary depending on your borough. The average is £43 and ranges from £16 to a whopping £130! Unlike skip licenses, CPZ suspensions are normally charged per day. The table below shows the cost for 1 day’s suspension.

Skip permit rates & parking suspension costs show minimum charges and may be the sum of two or more separate fees. Parking suspension charges can vary from street to street – the lowest charge is shown for the first day (costs may reduce for subsequent days). Some councils only issue permits to skip hire companies directly and may charge additional fees. No skips are permitted on the road in the City of London.
