An A-board is an advertising board outside shops and restaurants.
If you own a business and want to place an A-board on the pavement outside your property, you may need planning permission. Please contact your local district council for further information.
You must do this before you start using the A-board.
You do not need a licence, but do need to agree to the requirements.
Sign and return the A-board requirements form (PDF, 40.3 KB) to us.
We need to keep paths and roads clear for users and if A-boards are causing an obstruction, we may remove them.
Other options are available such as:
- externally mounted boards
- hanging signs
- externally mounted display boxes
- additional signage in the shop front.
Please check with your local district council if you need planning permission for any of the alternatives.
