A local business owner who had recently installed new (temporary) signage presented evidence which showed the signs were an improvement to the premises. The building is listed and in the conservation area, as such the signs would require listed building consent and planning permission. Following discussions and advice offered by councillors, the business owner decided to await correspondence from the borough.
Councillors will consider designing a guidance note on business signage for future reference.
