Advertisement Control
Inter-Authority Training

Advertisement control is an increasingly important yet often misunderstood part of the planning regime. The present Scottish Advertisement Regulations came into force in 1984 and have remained substantially unaltered. This workshop provides a clear insight into the complexities of the Regulations using real life examples at each stage. The workshop will be of benefit to development management, enforcement and support officers. Specific aspects covered include: what is an advertisement; advertisements not covered by the Regulations; deemed and express consents; Areas of Special Control; advertisement enforcement and flyposting.

Very informative. In depth discussion relating to advertisement control. This session has been a great refresher in this area and has given me a greater understanding in applying and interpreting the regs. Great visual examples.
