Businesses reminded to check guidance on advertising signs:
Argyll and Bute Council has produced a new set of guidelines to give clear advice to local firms and residents.
People planning to install new or replacement signs are being urged to check with the council before going ahead.
Policy Lead for Planning, Housing and Regulatory Services, Councillor David Kinniburgh, said: “Signage, whether it’s on a building or a sandwich board on the street, comes under the control of the council.
While some types of signage may not need permission, in many cases businesses will need to apply for planning consent or pavement licences before going ahead.
