Advertisements Q & A DCP Section 30

A good example of advertisement clutter at a roadside pub. Many of the signs and flags exhibited here do not need express consent under the Advertisement Regulations, although use of discontinuance powers could assist in reducing some of the visual harm being caused to a rural environment. This section is concerned with control of advertisements under The Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007, referred to as the Regulations throughout this text. The complexities of this legal code are dealt with at (4.36) where it is explained that some advertisements are exempt from control and others enjoy deemed consent under the Regulations and do not, therefore, require express planning permission. Advertisements affixed to listed buildings also require listed building consent and this form of control is examined here.
