EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007 (“the Regulations”) (S.I. 2007/783) which provide for the controls on the display of advertisements.

Regulation 2(2) substitutes Class 12 of Part 1 of Schedule 3 to the Regulations. This prevents advertisements of the type set out in Class 12 from being permitted in telephone kiosks.

Regulation 2(3) inserts a new Class of deemed consent into the Regulations. Class 17 gives deemed consent for advertisements on electric vehicle charging points and only applies to energy suppliers and/or those who install the electrical vehicle charging points.

A joint impact assessment has been prepared in relation to these Regulations and the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Amendment) (England) Order 2011 (S.I. 2011/2056). It has been placed in the library of each House of Parliament and copies can be obtained from the Department for Communities and Local Government, Eland House, Bressenden Place, London, SW1E 5DU (www.communities.gov.uk).
