Under the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations 2007, certain advertisements are 'permitted' without the need for express consent. In Conservation Areas certain advertisements on hoardings around building sites and all illuminated advertisements need Advertisement Consent (except for those indicating medical supplies or services). For more information on Advertisements please read DCLG Guidance: Outdoor Advertisements and Signs: A Guide for Advertisers.
As of 13 December 2013, in accordance with the Secretary of State's Notice of Approval a large part of central Wellingborough is now formally designated as an Area of Special Control of Advertisements and thereby subject to stricter controls over the types of advertisements which need consent under the Advertisement Regulations 2007.
All applications can be made online via the Planning Portal.
