Newham BID Signage Project


Newham BID, in association with Parc Signs, have put up new signs across Newham to direct visitors to your business and to make a bright visual impact to encourage visitors.  Fifteen of the proposed twenty signs are now in place with a further five proposed including an advertising sign opposite the exit to Tesco. Further information on how businesses can advertise on the signs will follow in Summer 2017. For a map of the locations of the signs, click here

On the 6th August Alison, the Newham BID Manager, presented to Truro City Council Planning Committee to gain support for the scheme which resolved the following:

RESOLVED that the project was supported in principle, however clarification needed to be sought on the planning process and Truro City Councils involvement, and that an official planning application be submitted by Newham BID for permission to erect the signs.
