New Design Guidance for Letting Boards
Nottingham City Council has produced new guidance to help control the appearance of letting boards in certain areas of the City where their display is considered to have a detrimental effect. Click here to view a copy of the Design Guidance for Letting Boards. [3Mb]
Consultation on the new guidance took place in September/October 2011. Click here to view a copy of the consultation report and the Councils response to comments. [24kb]
The final design guidance sets out criteria for boards such as size, font, and colour, as well as the way in which board should be displayed and when they should be displayed within the proposed letting board control area. .
Please Note that the Guidance maps are currently being updated in line with DCLG's decision. The criteria however, remains the same.
The City Council will require letting boards in the proposed area to comply with the guidance when the direction comes into force on the 17 October 2012.
