Advertising and signs

Find information on what advertising needs consent and what is exempt

The display of advertisements is governed by advertising regulations.

Some adverts have deemed consent and may be displayed without the need for permission, some need an application to be made and others we need to be notified of as the local planning authority before they are displayed.

It is important to make sure the regulations are followed as breach of them is an offence that can result in a criminal conviction.

The government have produced a handy guide for advertisers, outdoor advertisements and signs which provides more information about what you need to know and do.
