Road signs policy

1. Housing development signs

Developers may be permitted to put up signs advertising the location of a development if they meet certain conditions. They must apply to us to do so. Signs may be permitted if:

  • The development includes a minimum of 30 bedrooms
  • The developers or their contractors’ public liability insurance indemnifies us against all claims for injury accident or damage which may arise due to the presence of the signs on or adjacent to the highway
  • The signs conform to the current traffic signs regulations.
  • Each sign is mounted a minimum of 2.1m above the carriageway/footway/verge and the sign is at least 0.45m from the edge of the carriageway
  • Details of the location, number, wording and method of fixing of the signs along with proof of the developer’s public liability insurance must be provided to us for prior approval
  • No costs associated with removal or maintenance of the signs shall be borne by us
  • The signs shall be removed within three months of the sale of 80% of the properties
  • Any damage to existing street furniture arising from the erection of the temporary signs will be repaired and the costs recharged to the developer
