Lane rental charges: waiver, reduction and exemption requests

The Supplementary guidance document below includes scenarios in which requests shall be considered, along with general information. This should be read in conjunction with the scheme documents.

If you want to apply for a waiver, reduction or exemption related to these scenarios, go to the TfL StarGo Highways Licensing website. The StarGo Customer Portal User Guide is available below to help applicants navigate the platform.

Lane Rental Governance Committee (LRGC)

The Lane Rental Governance Committee (LRGC) manages the surplus income generated from the scheme by ensuring that expenditure is in accordance with Department for Transport (DfT) regulations.

The committee is made up of representatives from utility companies, along with internal colleagues, meeting quarterly to authorise funding requests for projects aimed at reducing disruption and improving how road and street works are carried out.

A review was done to provide assurance that the income from the TLRS is being managed in accordance with DfT regulations.
