If one takes a closerlook then I would have to say that in defence of the outfit in the advert / flier (showing the chimney install) then more than likely the standard wall bracket shown could well be part of a previous install and only the aerial is new. The downlead cabling certainly is original as it it buried in the render applied to the chimney (as is the bracket).

Guidance on the planning regulations are here:

Permission is not required for an antenna that is not more than 100cm in any linear dimension.

Looking at the dimensions of aerials sold by ATV, only the grid antenna doesn't need permission:

Is it the case that in practice most installations require permission but most people don't bother seeking it?
