Apply for directional signing for a tourist destination in Suffolk

How to apply for directional signing to a tourist destination, including the initial costs, the criteria you need to fulfil and an outline of the application.

The purpose of tourist signing is to help guide visitors from outside the local area to a tourist destination along the most appropriate route at the latter stages of their journey.  These signs should supplement rather than duplicate information already provided on existing directional signs. 

All requests for signing on trunk roads shall be assessed against the guidelines set down by Highways England.   

Where signing is being requested on a trunk road or on roads under the control of a neighbouring highway authority, the applicant will be required to complete the appropriate application forms from Highways England and / or the relevant highway authority in addition to the application form for signing on county roads in Suffolk.
