Control signboards on footpaths

Control signboards on footpaths

Regulate the proliferation of advertising signboards placed on footpaths outside shop and cafes etc.

Why is this important?

It seems that while businesses need to licence to place chairs and tables on public footpaths, advertising boards are not regulated at all. They pose a serious problem for blind and partially sighted people in particular but also inconvenience other pedestrians. I have become aware of this more as I am starting to lose my eyesight through macular degeneration. It's important that town centres remain safe for all people.
