Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need Planning Permission Before Installing a Flagpole?
To install a flagpole permanently, you will need planning permission from your local council.
Under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, flags come with the definition of an ‘advertisement’, and their display is controlled by the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations 1992.
However, under Schedule 2 of the regulations, the national flag of any country, including the Union Flag, is exempt from advertisement control provided ‘Each flag is flown from a single vertical pole and neither the flag nor the displays any advertisement additional to the design of the flag’.
Our experience is that in general planning permission is straightforward to obtain, particularly if there are other poles in the area which form a precedent. Our flagpole team can help you with this and provide all the information you will need for your application.
Internal or External halyard?
You can choose from either an external or internal halyards on a flagpole. The internal halyards are vandal proof and also aid with noise reduction. With the rope rigged on the inside of the flagpole, it gives the advantage of added security, durability, and does not interrupt the flowing line.
Do I need a rotating arm?
A rotating arm is used typically for portrait orientation flags. It is a light metal arm at the top of the flagpole which holds the flag out even when there is no wind.
