A-Boards and Advertising on the Highway
The number of A-Boards in the city has grown over the past few years, which is causing problems for pedestrians, especially those with disabilities. The council and local businesses are collaborating to allow A-Boards on the highway to advertise businesses, but they must follow specific guidelines to comply with relevant laws and ensure the safety and convenience of everyone, especially those who are visually impaired or use wheelchairs.
Please download the A-boards and Other Advertising Structures on the Highway Policy and Guidelines for more information.
"Café Culture" is a growing trend in our towns and cities. There is a demand for eating and drinking outdoors, and many pubs, restaurants and cafés providing for this demand by using the footway to operate pavement cafés. However, if pavement cafés are not carefully controlled they can lead to pedestrians being endangered and people with impaired vision, mobility difficulties or prams being disadvantaged.
Pavement Café Guidance explains the requirements and standards expected of pavement Café operators in Nottingham and guide those wishing to operate a pavement Café through how to apply for Highways Amenities Licences
