Apply for advertisement consent

Most outdoor advertising requires consent with only a few limited exceptions. The law regarding the placement of adverts is complex. However, the Council can grant consent for a period of five years and deemed consent for certain categories. Most illuminated adverts need consent.

The Council can challenge any advertisement put up with deemed consent, requiring it to be removal if it is considered to have a negative affect on the area or public safety.Planning portal logo for signpost page

When you submit an application for advertisement consent we prefer they are made via the Planning Portal where you can also find more advice.
