Control over the display of outdoor advertising in the UK has proved to be one of the great success stories of recent times - resulting in few totally inappropriate advertising displays in our urban centres and countryside and avoiding the visual clutter that is so evident in some other countries. In simple terms, this successful planning legislation works on the requirement for consent under the Advertisements Regulations - not planning permission - for the display of a particular advertisement or for the use of a site for the display of advertising. This new book is a comprehensive guide to the law of advertisements as it relates to the whole of the United Kingdom. It explores all aspects of the control of outdoor advertising: the detailed mechanics of the legislation, conditions, compensation for removal of advertisements, appeals, prosecution and penalty notices. Two final chapters of this book are dedicated to special provisions in the Greater London area and advertising as it relates to the Olympic Games. Useful appendices, including relevant sections from Acts and Regulations, as well as further government guidance, complete this valuable book.
Local authority planning departments, planning solicitors and barristers, statutory undertakers and, of course, the outdoor advertising industry will find this book invaluable.
