Planning Matter Archive

Defending the interests of members and the sign industry as a whole is part of the remit of the BSGA and one area in particular – Local Plans – is a cause for ongoing concern.  These plans are created by local authorities to set out regulations which cover planning applications within their territories, and often carry conditions that could adversely affect the production and installation of signs.

The BSGA monitors Local Plans constantly and wherever it is considered that there are unwarranted clauses or conditions that could affect the sign industry, the BSGA lodges a protest. Below are the most recent areas of activity. Full details and the content and response by the BSGA with the relevant Local Authority is available for download in the Members’ Area. It can make interesting reading when the Local Authority decide to implement a policy which from their perspective seems perfectly reasonable and it comes up against legislation already in place preventing such an action (as well as common sense in some cases).

This work is continuous and the Association has lodged protests against Local Plans published by the following local authorities:
