EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

These Regulations amend the Planning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992 (“the principal Regulations”) (S.I. 1992/448) which provide for the controls on the display of advertisements including advertisements relating to an election.

Regulation 3 – amends regulation 4 of and Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations to remove Class F, i.e., “an advertisement relating specifically to a pending Parliamentary, European Parliamentary, Northern Ireland Assembly or district council election”. The effect of the removal of Class F is that such advertisements are no longer excluded from the requirement to obtain consent for their display.

Regulation 4 inserts a new Class 13 (Advertisements relating to an election) into Schedule 3 to the principal Regulations. The effect of this is to provide deemed consent for the display of an advertisement relating specifically to a pending Parliamentary, European Parliamentary, Northern Ireland Assembly or district council election. The consent of the owner of the site on which the advertisement is displayed is not required for the display of an advertisement within this Class.

Regulation 4(c) amends Class 3 of Schedule 3 (Miscellaneous temporary advertisements) to clarify that an advertisement relating to a pending Parliamentary, European Parliamentary, Northern Ireland Assembly or district council election cannot be displayed under Class 3.
