Outdoor advertising: approval

Outdoor advertising is the form of advertising in which the advertising medium is located in public spaces. The affixing of outdoor advertising is usually subject to authorisation.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district, the district-free city, the large independent city and the municipalities with building supervision powers.

An overview of the lower building inspectoratescan be found on the website of the Lower Saxony Ministry of Social Affairs, Health and Gender Equality.

Which documents are required?

Documents may be required. Please contact the appropriate body.

What are the fees?

A building permit fee is charged in accordance with the facilities for the Building Fee Regulations and, if applicable, an additional special use fee in individual cases in accordance with local law.

If an advertising installation is installed without a necessary building permit, this can be punished with an administrative offence.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The application must be submitted in good time before the advertising system is affixed.

What else should I know?

Where appropriate, a special use permit may also be required for the use of public space. In individual cases, you will be advised by the building inspectorate or the respective municipal administration.

There are also non-approved advertising systems in accordance with clause 10 of Appendix 1 to Section 60 of the Lower Saxony Building Code (NBauO), e.g. for advertising systems with a viewing area of up to 1sqm, for advertising installations for temporary events or for advertising installations that are temporarily public elections.

Moreover, nBauO does not apply to advertising materials affixed to the columns, panels or surfaces approved for this purpose.
