Hoardings ~ under the Highways Act 1980 a close boarded fence hoarding must be erected prior to the commencement of building operations if such operations are adjacent to a public footpath or highway. The hoarding needs to be adequately constructed to provide protection for the public, resist impact damage, resist anticipated wind pressures and adequately lit at night. Before a hoarding can be erected a licence or permit must be obtained from the local authority who will usually require 10 to 20 days notice. The licence will set out the minimum local authority requirements for hoardings and define the time limit period of the licence.
