We have recently changed the way we deal with applications to erect banners or decorations over the highway.
Following consultation with town and parish councils we are making it easier for communities to enhance their communities without having to go through costly and time consuming procedures in order to obtain a licence from us.
- We will no longer charge a fee for a licence to put up banners or decorations
- Communities can erect temporary, non-commercial banners or decorations over the highway once they have agreed to our terms and conditions, which are available on our website
We will remove any item considered to be unsafe, a nuisance, inappropriate, advertising commercial services or in breach of our terms and conditions, subject to a £150 release fee.
Please see our website for full information on the changes.
