Fixed signage without planning permission

Here for example is a case in point which is typical of fixed signage scattered across Fife road network and on land adjacent to it and at this location distracts form the real street signage etc. But this is an issue in all industrial estates and near the road network junctions across Fife where some business are erecting fixed signage and not even bothering with the get out clause previously of it being mobile.

This sort of thing is making Fife look very tardy indeed, any business having mobile signs directly outside their own premises as long as it doesn't block the route for pedestrians and cyclists is acceptable but the council needs to clamp down heavy on this commercial advertising down by a minority if left un-tackled imagine what Fife would look like if the 99% of other business's did the same. Get something down soon and keep Fife tidy.

  • Not so much fixed but an easy reply from the council passing the buck by providing a link to report directly to planning rather than deal with it

  • Surprisingly the council did reply promptly to tell me to report it to another department. Takes away the point of the app if they are just going to try to sidestep the issue.
