Street Signs

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Scottish Government has introduced some changes to the licensing process for some licenses, which mainly relate to the extension of timescales.

Licence Summary

Any business or service provider who wishes to erect commercial displays that project into the street or onto the pavement to publicise an enterprise or sell articles, must apply for a permit/licence to do so.

Note: in general the footpaths in Argyll and Bute are narrow which restricts the number of locations where these requests will be granted.
