One of the questions we receive from clients looking for plastic hoarding is; do I need planning permission for it? According to the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations 2007, advertising on a hoarding wall qualifies as what is known as ‘deemed consent.’ Advertisements that are classified as deemed consent does not require planning permission from the local planning authority as long as they comply with particular criteria. For this blog, Network Scaffold will explain construction hoarding and permissions that could be required in greater detail. What is the Criteria of Consent for Construction Hoarding? For advertising on site hoarding to qualify for deemed consent, it will need to meet the following conditions – No advertising is displayed earlier than three months before building operations start. The local planning authority has been notified of the day when the advertisement will be first displayed, at least 14 days before the first display date. The person proposing to display the advertisement needs to notify the local planning authority in writing and send a copy of the relevant planning permission. No advertisement is more than 38 square metres in area No part of the advertisement is more than 4.6 metres above ground level The advertisement won’t be displayed for more than 3 years However, if you need plastic hoarding for construction work in a conservation area, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a National Park, the Broads or an area of special control, advertising hoardings are not permitted. Final Considerations for Plastic Hoarding Any graphics placed on hoarding walls will only benefit from deemed consent if they are placed on construction sites.

Hoarding also shows people they cannot enter the area plus you can further enforce the message with signage on your hoarding.

Site Security – One of the best things about using site hoarding is that it keeps your project away from prying eyes. If you are looking to keep your project under wraps, hoarding acts as a visible barrier between your site and the public. The public will also not be able to see your materials and tools being stored on-site, protecting them from potential theft. Branding Your Site – From a marketing perspective, construction hoarding is one of the simplest branding opportunities you can have.
