Planning - advertisement control
A Government booklet "Outdoor Advertisements and Signs, A Guide for Advertisers” explains how the advertisement control system works. This booklet can be downloaded from the Communities and Local Government website, under 'External websites".
You may need to apply for advertisement consent to display an advertisement bigger than 0.3 square metres on the front of, or outside, your property. So you are unlikely to need consent for a sign with your house name or number on it, or even a sign saying 'Beware of the dog'.
Temporary notices up to 0.6 square metres relating to local events, such as fêtes and concerts, may be displayed for a short period. There are different rules for estate agents' boards, but, in general, these should not be bigger than 0.5 square metres.
The department of Communities and Local Government provide a booklet which aims to explain to everyone who wants to display an outdoor advertisement how the system of advertisement control works in England and Wales.
