“Did you know community organisations, schools and sports clubs can promote events for free at designated council sites?
“You’ll have seen election candidate signs grouped at sites across our district. The 10 designated sites, along with our community noticeboards, can be booked to temporarily promote community events.
“Check out our website for more information, or register using our online form. Council approval is required before you install any signs.”
KCDC webpage info on this.
We’d recommend being sparing with them, however, as the impact of a ‘forest’ of billboards can be one of visual pollution. —Eds

So let’s say a group like Voices For Freedom will have no problem getting ‘permission’?

It’s unlikely any activist or pressure group would get permission; the council knows that if they allow one it will be a precedent for allowing all. That is the reason why we made an issue out of Mr Ranford plonking a remote billboard for his law practice outside the golf course a few years ago; we wanted it gone and no more to appear. So far none have.
