Following guidance from Welsh Government, we've produced specific guidance and downloadable resources to help you prepare to re-open your business. This underpins the 5-step approach published by UK Government.

If you plan to put up hoarding or fencing on any part of the public highway, you will need a licence from us.

You will need to complete the hoarding application form. You will receive an invoice for the fees.

You will need the following information:

  • Location of hoarding
  • How long you require a licence
  • Copy of your public liability insurance which must be a minimum of £5 million will need to be submitted with the application form

Your completed application form can be submitted via email to streetcare@carmarthenshire.gov.uk.

The fee payable for applying for a hoarding licence is currently £79.00 per month (valid until 31st March 2021). 

If your licence lapses you will be charged an out of date renewal fee of £140 per month (valid until 31/03/2021). 

If you know that the works are going to take longer than 1 calendar month you can apply for a longer duration on the initial application. This can work out cheaper than applying for an extension each month. 

All hoarding applications are invoiced to the contractor on a monthly basis.

Please note that our licence fees are subject to review every April and licences submitted after April 1st will be subject to any new fees.

A non-emergency application takes a minimum of 5 working days to process

An emergency application can be submitted if there is a danger to the general public. In this situation your contractor will need to submit the application form then attend site to begin erecting the hoarding.
