Advertisements are not always as straightforward as a non-illuminated fascia sign on the front of a newsagents shop. The process can be complex and there are many legal cases that have changed the way planning authorities now deal with your advert application.

The general public are regularly concerned about visual clutter in our streets especially if it is adjacent to their homes. The local authority enforcement teams are often called to inspect apparently illegal adverts and the interpretation of what constitutes an advert and if it requires permission is a contentious issue. We can help untangle the complex and confusing Control of Advertisement Regulations especially given the stricter enforcement powers now in place and the fines involved. We submit advertisement consent applications and negotiate with the local authorities to understand the needs of both planning policy but also the visual appearance of the advert.
