down on 'sign clutter' in Burnham-On-Sea, council is told
clampdown on confusing sign 'clutter' is needed in Burnham-On-Sea,
town councillors have been told this week.
Turco, representing the Chamber of Trade on the council's Town
Improvements Committee, proposed a number of improvements to pedestrian
signs as part of the council's plans to make the town centre more
signs in Victoria Street and Oxford Street direct pedestrians
to the 'Council Information Point', even though it closed
down over four years ago.
currently no consistent approach on what the signs are used for
- they need to be improved to encourage pedestrian movement and
help increase footfall in the shopping area, boosting economic
activity," said Alex.
decision is needed on what are the key sign locations to create
better footfall through our town centre and what are the key places
of interest to be sign-posted."
committee agreed to investigate the costs of new 'finger post'
signs in the town centre ahead of a decision later in the year
on whether to use some of the £320,000 of Tesco community
funding on the scheme.
