Step 1 - How to submit your Traffic Management application

You must make your application electronically using via the map below.

How to use our reporting form

If you want to track progress on your enquiry, you can log in to, or register for a BRUM account.

1. Start your report

Look at the map to begin.

The map will show a 2-mile area around Birmingham city centre by default.

2. Find and plot the location

There are 2 ways to find the location.

  1. Use the "Search for a place" box
    Type a postcode or road name in the search box.
    If you know the property number, include it too.
  2. Manual search
    Explore the map and zoom in to mark the location.
    On the left side of the map, you will find the tools:
    • Zoom buttons. Use the plus and minus buttons to zoom in and out.
      Mobile users can also pinch to zoom.
    • Find my location circle. Use this to zoom to where you are right now
    To move around the map, click or tap and drag.

Click or tap the map to plot the location. A marker will appear.

3. Submit your report

Once you have plotted the location on the map, select "Submit new enquiry" to start the form.

If you're using an older browser such as Internet Explorer 10 or earlier, the map might not appear. Try using a newer browser for the best experience.

Step 2 - How to apply for a Roadworks Permit

You must make your application electronically using 'Street Manager' via the link below. Alternatively, you may use your own permitting system as long as it has a direct API link to Street Manager.

Apply for a roadworks permit on GOV.UK

Be aware that Birmingham Traffic Management (BTM) applications and permits are accessed as one submission.

If your permit application is received before your BTM application, it will be refused. You must provide your BTM reference number in the works description of your permit.
