Banners on the Highway
Local organisations may apply to Farnham Town Council for consent to place a banner on the highway.
Farnham Town Council is responsible for the administration of banner bookings as well as health and safety aspects of banner installation. Licences are issued by Surrey County Council as the Highway Authority. This is to fulfill the relevant legislation in order prevent damage and injury to the public.
Farnham Town Council administers the following:
- Booking of spaces in Downing Street and The Borough for the placing of banners over the highway
- Arranging for a Council's approved installer to put up and take down the banners
- Overseeing the licencing process and ensuring all documentation is checked
Applicant organisations will however need Public Liability Insurance to cover the adequacy of the structure of the banner. Applicants will need to make arrangements direct with the Council's installer for the delivery and collection of banners - contact details are on the application form.
A request to place a banner over the highway must be made to Farnham Town Council not less than 6 weeks before the date of the proposed installation. This will give sufficient time to process the application and obtain the licence from Surrey County Council. There will normally be a maximum letting period of 2 weeks and each week will run from Sunday to Sunday.
Banner Installation - £70.00
Rent per week - £25.00
Administration Fee - £35.00
