  • 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
  • Prior to approval we must have
    • Details of the location
    • Phone number
    • Wording
    • Method of fixing of the signs
    • Proof of the developer’s public liability insurance 
  • No costs associated with removal or maintenance of the signs shall be borne by us

  • Any damage to existing street furniture arising from the erection of the temporary signs will be repaired and the costs recharged to the developer
