Apply to put up hoardings

You need a hoarding licence if you are going to erect hoardings on the verge, footway, footpath or carriageway. 

To make an application you need:

  • a copy of your insurance schedule which should include a minimum of £10 million public liability cover

Online applications take approximately 3 minutes to complete.


What happens next

Please note that your application will not be processed should you fail to submit the required supporting documents.  Failure to submit supporting information will cause delays and may affect your start date.

Applications will take approximately 4 weeks to complete (providing all documents are submitted).

The licence will be valid for 28 calendar days. A licence can only be renewed twice, after which, a new initial licence must be applied for.

If you are unsure if the area you wish to erect hoardings is private or not, check the list of streets.
