Replacement or changes to street signs

Requests for replacement street signs or changes to signs, are to be made to Babergh District Council.

Applications are only considered from a town or parish council when they have agreed to pay for the new sign or changes.

If you feel that a street sign needs to be changed, or an extra sign is needed, then you should first contact the town/parish council.

The town/parish council must apply to the local authority who will consider the request for the change or additional sign.

Change to or Additional Sign application

Once received, the Street Naming and Numbering Service will review the request and make a decision.

If the change or replacement sign is agreed, details of the change and cost will be sent to the town/parish council to be approved. Once approved, the sign will be ordered and installed.

The town/parish council will be invoiced for the supply and installation costs. The district does not make a charge for the administration costs involved.
