If you want to position a hoarding on a public highway (which includes pavements, roads and highways) you will need to have a hoarding permit in place.
Anyone erecting a hoarding on the highway should be aware of the following requirements:
- It is an offence to erect a hoarding on the highway without the permission of the highways authority;
- The highway authority may grant permission (licence) with or without conditions;
- The owner of a scaffold must ensure that it is erected in accordance with safety conditions attached to the licence.
£75 per hoarding, per 28 days (if installed by a competent company)
