Hi Paul,
If you talk to the signage company they’ll guide you. There are different rules around size and areas of Beauty. 
To apply you need to show artists illustrations, engineers reports etc. The last time I did it you just stuck the sign up (making guestimates about planning with the signage company) and then when the planners called you’d look for a retro licence. 
So talk to the signage company and take their lead – they do it everyday. 
Hope that helps.
