Construction Site Hoarding FAQs

We’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions about construction site hoardings below. 


A hoarding wall is a large temporary wall that is made of individual panels that are constructed around the perimeter of a building site. The panels can be made from painted wooden boards or high-quality printed free standing panels. 

If the hoarding is made by us here at Octink, it can even feature customised elements that quite literally, turn the hoarding into a history lesson or an intriguing piece of art for passers by! 

Take a look at the hoarding we created around Battersea Power Station to see what we do in action.

Hoarding maintenance

The average time that hoarding takes to install is 72 hours. Though, as no two perimeter sizes or

even hoarding sizes are the same, there’s never an exact timeframe we can give to cover each

individual project.

However, as our hoarding can be printed onsite (if you select to work with our designers) and we’ll

be installing the hoarding for you, we can give you an estimate of the installation time frame once

we know what we’re working with.

Any construction sites that are deemed to be high risk legally require hoarding, as stated in the

Construction Regulations 2015.

The site must include a protective boundary to ensure the safety of the general public is not

compromised due to the works taking place.

Read more in our blog post ‘What is a hoarding and what is its purpose?’.

In order to meet health and safety requirements, construction hoarding usually stands at a height of

8 feet (or 2.4 metres). However, depending on the specific site, the hoarding may need to be taller

than the standard height.

Once our experts have conducted a site survey, we’ll be able to let you know more about the

specifics of your hoardings.

In general, illumination within hoarding is not permitted. The only exceptions are when illuminated

is created by static means, or includes no intermittent light source such as flashing lights or exposed

cold cathode tubing.

However, as demonstrated in our illuminated signage video, we can incorporate aspects of

illumination within your hoarding or signage, so long as it complies with regulations. As an example,

we have used static lighting (which is permitted) in previous projects to help ensure advertising

placed on hoarding is still visible at night.

Yes, and hoarding also requires what’s known as ‘deemed consent’, as outlined in The Town and

Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) (England) Regulations 2007.

Deemed consent must be granted at least 14 days before the advertisement (hoarding) is due to be

displayed, and a copy of the planning permission must also be submitted with the application.

There are strict criteria of building site hoarding regulations that will determine whether deemed

consent is granted or not, and some of the main points include:

  • No advertisement shall exceed 38 square metres in area
  • No part of the advertisement may be more than 4.6 metres above ground level
  • The maximum display time for construction site hoarding is 3 years
  • No advertisement shall be displayed in a limitations conservation area, a National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or the Broads

Please rest assured that if you’re new to construction site hoardings, we will advise you on

everything you need to know, and our in-house team of planners, designers and installers will

ensure everything runs smoothly in terms of any aspects we will have direct involvement in.
