Deemed consent for advertisements

The term ‘deemed consent’ refers to the automatic consent permitted for types of advertisements listed in Schedule 3 of the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007.

There are 17 classes of advertisement in Schedule 3, each of which has its own criteria and conditions that must be satisfied. If the relevant conditions are not satisfied, then express consent is required from the local planning authority. In addition, local planning authorities can apply to the government for a regulation 7 direction to remove or restrict deemed consent for a particular area.

Advertisements listed in Schedule 1 of the regulations are permitted without consent from the local planning authority. Advertisements not listed in Schedule 1 or 3, or listed in Schedule 3 but not complying with the conditions, require ‘express consent’ from the local planning authority. See advertisement consent for more information.
