Many signs and advertisements need approval from the local planning authority, known as advertisement consent. However, a wide range of options are allowable under the Regulations without specific approval.
We can advise you on how to take advantage of the Regulations and avoid the need to apply for advertisement consent.
The Regulations are complicated and many local planning authorities have an incomplete grasp of the detail. In several cases we have been able to persuade Councils to withdraw threatened action against ‘unauthorised’ signs by proving that no consent was needed.
Advertisement consent is an arcane and often overlooked aspect of planning control. However, we are very well qualified to guide you through the system to help you achieve successful conclusions.
