HC Deb 27 October 1992 vol 212 c544W
Mr. Clifton-Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what guidelines his Department issues to local authorities on highway signs in areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

I have been asked to reply.

The visual appearance of traffic signs is required to comply with the traffic signs regulations and general directions 1981. Circular roads 7/75 gives advice on the ways of minimising the intrusion of traffic signs on highways in rural areas. Guidance on the provision of signs to tourists attractions is given in circular roads 1/91.

Copies of these circulars are in the Library.
