Road signs policy
2. Neighbourhood Watch signs
The Neighbourhood Watch scheme was set up by Thames Valley Police (TVP), the forms are on their Website .
We approve the signs, if the following are met:
- The sign used must be approved by TVP
- The number of signs should be kept to a minimum
- The signs should be between 2.1 and 3.6 m above ground level.
- Upkeep of the signs is the responsibility of the Neighbourhood Watch group
- All signs must have third party liability insurance (contact TVP for information)
Signs may be put up:
- On electricity/telegraphs poles, with written permission of the owner
- On posts supporting village nameplates (height conditions do not apply)
- On private land where the signs can be put on posts, walls and fencing with the owner’s permission
Signs must not be erected:
- On any traffic sign
- On traffic signal pole/post.
We will remove signs and charge for person responsible for the costs of removal, if the process is not followed.
Send to the Planning Department at the District council.
- A copy of the letter from us
- A copy of the application form
If we or TVP refuse or the scheme stops, the signs must be taken down within 14 days.
