If you need to install a hoarding on land that belongs to Manningham, you will need to get a hoarding permit. You will not need a hoarding permit if the location of the hoarding is within a building site.
This permit is not a report and consent for regulation 116, which is a requirement for the erection of precautions over the street alignment.
To keep the public safe, the placing of hoardings must be in accordance with the hoarding and overhead protective awning plan. This is a document we will endorse and is part of the permit.
The works that need a permit
You will only need a hoarding permit if part of the hoarding is
- outside the property boundary
- the hoarding changes normal access for the public such as partial or full occupation of the footpath.

- store building materials, plants, equipment, site sheds or machinery.
