The Planning Service has published the final version of Planning Policy Statement 17 on Control of Outdoor Advertisements
The Planning Service has published the final version of Planning Policy Statement 17 on Control of Outdoor Advertisements. This follows consultation on the draft document published in February 2004.
PPS 17 sets out the Department’s planning policy and guidance for the control of outdoor advertisements. It aims to encourage the provision of well designed advertising which respects the building or location where it is displayed and which contributes to a quality environment. It complements the Government’s commitment to securing a competitive economy whilst affording appropriate protection to amenity and public safety including road safety.
Hard copies of PPS 17 will also be available from Divisional Planning Offices in the near future. As part of the implementation of Modernising Planning Processes a Summary of Consultation Responses on the draft document has also been produced.
