The Department responds to claims in The Sunday Times that the National Planning Policy Framework will result in advertising billboards ‘littering’ the countryside.

A spokesman for the Department for Communities and Local Government said:

The draft Framework maintains the current protections to prevent inappropriate billboard advertising in the countryside. Suggestions that the Government intends to weaken the policy are wrong.
