Brown tourism signs

Brown tourist signs policy

The Brown Tourist sign policy applies only to those roads that come under Redbridge Council's Highways Authority. Roads within Redbridge that the Highways Agency or Transport for London (TfL) are responsible for are subject to different signage regulations. Contact the Highways Agency and Transport for London for more information about tourism signs on their roads.

The purpose of the policy is to provide a clear framework for signage on publicly maintained Borough roads. It also provides guidance on the application procedures and associated costs for any businesses interested in applying for tourism signs.


Where can you put a Brown Tourist sign?

Any tourist destination, for example:

  • permanent established destination
  • facility that attracts and is used by visitors to an area
  • facility open to the public during its opening hours without the need for bookings
