What is a pavement or street display licence?
You can’t walk down a high-street in the UK without seeing an advertising sign or display outside a shop. And with good reason, having a sign outside your shop or premises is a good way to not only advertise your business, but also to bring in and encourage footfall.
However, placing a sign to advertise your business outside your premises isn’t as simple as just getting a sign and putting it on the pavement. To place a sign outside your business, you will need a pavement or street display licence.
NOTE – As part of your application, local authorities may inspect the area you wish to place your sign to ensure that no obstruction or nuisance could be caused to members of the public.
How to apply for a pavement or street display licence
Pavement or street display licence applications must be made via your local council. You can find the contact details for your local council at the Official UK Government Website.
