Planning Applications

In most cases changing signs or adding new signs to you site will require consultation with Development Control at your local authority. We coordinate with the relevant planning officers to prepare and submit your planning applications; ensuring applications are prepared professionally and presented accurately in conjunction with planning guidelines. The opinion of a planner on a new application can be supplied within 10 working days but for a full application to go through to approval will take between 6 and 8 weeks. Approval for advertisement consent (signs) will then last for 5 years. We provide a full planning management service for a small fee.
