Streets for All : 8 Reducing sign clutter

Through time many streets have become the victims of street clutter as a result of the inclusion of excessive amounts of street furniture: conventional parking and direction signs, advertising, and ad hoc signing to reduce specific inappropriate activities. Each of these combine to create a foreground that is confused and cluttered, where all emphasis has been taken away from a pleasant built environment.

We are now (September 2017) consulting on revised Streets for All guidance. See our guidance consultations webpage for more details.

The consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 9 November 2017.
