Frequently Asked Questions

How do I obtain a permit to erect hoardings?

Any hoarding which encroaches onto the highway requires a hoarding permit; these permits are only issued to the company who have erected the hoarding.

This should be returned to us with a copy of your Public Liability Insurance (minimum of £10,000,000) either via email to or posted back to us before the date the hoarding is to be erected.
