Important Planning Update

From 1 July 2024 we will no longer be sending neighbour notification letters advising of planning applications made on, adjacent or near your property. To make sure you don't miss anything, please sign up for My Alerts.


Household Support Fund

Due to predicted high demand, applications for the Household Support Fund have now closed. Further support can be found on our Cost of Living and Household Support pages

Under the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations 1992, permission is required to display most advertisements and signs. However, there are many exceptions due to the regulations being quite complicated.

Further information about the advertisement regulations is available from the DCLG booklet: Outdoor Advertisements and Signs: A Guide for Advertisers

The council has also issued its own Planning Guidance Note 11: Advertisement display guide which outlines the general problems and opportunities of outdoor advertising, and by laying down general guidelines, seeks to encourage a high standard of sympathetic design in respect of such proposals.
