1. Job Description
We are looking to collect all Planning Applications for Outdoor Advertising in the London Borough of Lambeth. Outdoor Advertising appears in the form of Phoneboxes, Bus Stops, Billboards, Banners and free-standing Totems etc. This does not include applications for retail signage or ATMs. It is only for independent advertising sites. Outdoor Advertising is explained with supporting images and explanations in the link below:
As these items affect the appearance of the public realm they need to apply for Planning Permission before being built. These applications and should therefore appear on the Council’s Planning Database.
2. Proposed Workflow
The proposed workflow is to visit Lambeth’s Planning Database - which is publicly-accessible - and to use search terms to find the applications. Then save all of the files for each application in a separate folder for each project. The folder will be provided in a google drive. This will allow shared visibility of the material collected and an easy response to any queries that may arise.
3. Workflow Steps
a. In a web browser EG , navigate to the Lambeth Planning Database (link below):
b. Click on ‘visit the planning applications database (link below)’
c. Keyword Search to find Outdoor Advertising applications
‘sheets’ (industry unit for measuring advertising dimension).
d. Click on a search result that looks suitable, for example:
The application should fall into the advertising category, and should therefore have a code ending in ‘ADV’, for example: 16/05334/ADV.
e. Navigate to the ‘Documents’ tab. For example:
f. Download document links
Right-click on icon (magnifying glass) > save link as (pdf)
Click on icon > open pdf > download file
g. Transfer the downloaded documents to Google Drive folder (link provided)
Drag the files into the google drive folder, named by the application number.
4. Additional Notes
- Create a new folder on for each application found.
- See screenshots provided to support explanation and clarify process.
- Advertising site sizes are often measured in ‘sheets’. Eg a ‘48 sheet’ is a large billboard
- There is likely to be more opportunities to do this nature of work, so feedback and quality of work will be much appreciated.
- Only include permanent items. Do not include construction site hoardings.
- Do not include retail signage
- Do not include ATMs.
- Start from the first suitable result and work down through the search results
Please let us know if you have any further queries.

Is this a per hour or fixed price job? The advertised 100 GBP per hour is a little bit confusing.
