Advertisements

The Control of Advertisement Regulations 2007 cover the erection and display of all types of signs and notices.

The regulations are complex. Certain types of signs such as those which are illuminated usually require formal advertisement consent whilst others are exempt under the Regulations. If you intend to display any type of advertisement or notice it is worth checking with the Planning Department whether advertisement consent is required. Strict policies on advertising apply in Conservation Areas and to listed buildings and in relation to signs within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the town centre Conservation Areas of Battle, Bexhill and Rye the Local Planning Authority is seeking to encourage traditional forms of signs and lettering so as to improve and enhance the specific character of each of these historic shopping centres. Listed Building Consent will often be required for signs in addition to Advertisement Consent. If signs require advertisement consent and are displayed without such consent such action is a criminal offence. Also the Council has power to remove signs displayed illegally or serve discontinuance notices on poorly designed signs installed under deemed consent (exempt from regulations).
