Does My Sign Need Planning? - Part 2

Karen Griffin - Thursday, February 26, 2015

Continuing our investigation of potential planning quirks . . .


Loop Hole #2

Interestingly, there are a whole raft of different promotional products that just don't need planning permission.


These include 

  • flags - would this include feather flags? . . . still not legally tested!
  • signage associated with an Election (which is probably pretty temporary anyway)
  • promotional boards associated with a community event such as a jumble sale or fete
We all know of organisations that have had their road side boards removed by the grass cutting council.  Legally, this is nothing to do with the grass cutting.  It is because the chief rule on all signage is that you MUST have the LAND OWNERS PERMISSION.  And verges, lamp posts and trees usually belong to either a local Council or Highways.  Both of whom are difficult to get a decision out of.  Why not ask a house owner whose fence faces a main road?

Remember that the most widely recognised definition of 'temporary' is 30 days or less.  So if you are holding a charity event on 6 March, just put the boards and banners up on 6 February.  Don't forget to allow time to get the material made too!

The most interesting loop hole I will save until next time . . .

Goodness knows what your workshop smells like, because these banners have rather an orange-y whiff to them now!
