PPS 17: Control of Outdoor Advertisements
Annex A: Signs at Filling Stations and on Forecourts
29. Signage at ﬁlling stations usually comprises a combination of a canopy, a pole/pylon, and shop fascia signage together with a number of smaller forecourt signs. In view of the range of signs involved there is often potential for their cumulative effect to result in clutter. To help prevent this a co-ordinated approach should be taken when bringing forward proposals, particularly where existing signage is being replaced.
30. Particular care is needed in assessing proposals for illuminated advertisements at ﬁlling stations located adjacent to or near residential properties.
