Local restrictions that apply to letting boards in certain parts of the city.
We have defined nine areas of the city where To Let boards cannot be displayed on residential properties without our consent, unless they follow strict criteria. This has been done through a 'Regulation 7 Direction', which takes away the normal rights (known as 'Deemed Consent') to display such boards without permission. The original Direction came into force in October 2012 and expired on 16 October 2017.
Following an application by the City Council as the local planning authority to renew the direction, the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government approved a further direction to continue the control of letting boards in these areas. The Direction, which was granted on 10th January 2018, comes into force on 19th February 2018 and will apply for the next five years.
We have published detailed guidance on how the rules operate, please see below.
If you have any general questions or would like further information on the guidance please contact firstname.lastname@example.org , call 0115 876 4447 or Jo Briggs on 0115 8764041.
