Brown tourism signs
Although it may seem a simple matter to have a sign put up near your business, please remember there are road safety, quality and ‘sign pollution' issues to assess before applications can be approved, as well as an assessment of the facilities offered.
There is an application process, and your application will be judged against a range of eligibility criteria, as well as against road safety and traffic management factors.
In order to strike an appropriate balance between the needs of visitors and the tourism industry, the local environment and Essex County Council's obligation to ensure safe and effective traffic management, we have adopted a policy so that the vetting of applications for the provision of brown tourism signs to attractions and facilities is consistent throughout the county.
If you are a tourism establishment and require brown tourism signs, please download the policy document and application form below. Once you have read the document and think you qualify for brown tourism signs please contact Elli Constantatou on Tel: 01245 430239 or email Elli for an information discussion about whether your business would be eligible for brown tourism signs. Please DO NOT send in your completed application form unless you have spoken to Elli.
