HL Deb 29 April 1998 vol 589 c28WA
Lord Marlesford

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which sections of trunk road in England and Wales are located on the edge of industrial estates and which they therefore believe can be edged with advertising hoardings without contravening the Planning Policy Note on Advertisement Control. [HL1627]

Baroness Hayman

There is no information readily available to identify the trunk roads in England and Wales that are located on the edge of industrial estates. Responsibility for advertisement control in England and Wales rests with local planning authorities who may exercise their power only in the interests of "amenity" and "public safety" in accordance with the advice in Planning Policy Guidance Note 19 and that contained in the department's Circular 5/92.
