Local business owners are being reminded about their responsibilities regarding advertising signage.

Deputy General Manager Mark Pepping says during the height of the COVID-19 lock-down, council relaxed many of its regulatory and compliance activities including the use of temporary signage and A-frames on pathways.

This was done so shopkeepers could attract what limited customers were still out and about through their doors.

But Mr. Pepping says these businesses need to return to their regular approved advertising signage.

Rangers have been given the authority to remove the signs aswell as issue fines for people who continue to flout the rules.
