Survey & Planning

Following an initial meeting to discuss your signage project, it may be agreed that a site survey is required.

A site survey will identify:

  • Hazards / health and safety issues
  • Sign location
  • Product suitability
  • Correct signage sizes
  • Legibility requirements
  • Navigational issues
  • Disability requirements
  • Installation requirements (including access machinery)

During the survey, your requirements will be discussed in greater detail and any additions or amendments documented. The project manager will also propose solutions or alternatives to overcome any potential site issues.

When undertaking an external signage project, it’s critical to consider the potential need for planning guidance. Understanding local planning requirements will help avoid time consuming and often costly mistakes. Planning approval can take upwards of 8-12 weeks, so it’s best to be prepared, especially if alterations to your application are required.

Permissions may also be required for working in busy pedestrian areas, or road closures if fitting at street level.  Both can be checked through your local planning office.

Our comprehensive planning service includes –

  • application (including artwork and mapping) and planning fees.
  • Site meetings with planning officers when required.
