The term street furniture covers all types of traffic signs,
direction signs, road nameplates, bus shelters, street lights,
subway lights and other items fixed somewhere in the street for the
safety and convenience of the public.
Safety fencing, bollards and crash barriers are installed to
protect pedestrians and motorists in the event of traffic accidents
and as a result, these often get damaged.
Benches are also sited to benefit the public where there is a
recognised need, such as in shopping areas.
Bollards and barriers
The council receives a high number of requests for bollards and
barriers. Unfortunately, funds are not limitless and it has a duty
to promote schemes that will be of most benefit to all road users
and where the need is greatest.
Local demand for bollards far outweighs the money available, so
only a limited number of street furniture schemes are approved each
year on a strict priority basis. The council will assess the site
and give a rating to determine its position in the priority list.
Your request will remain on file.
Bus shelters are provided to give passengers a degree of
protection and comfort while waiting for a bus. Many of these
shelters are owned and maintained by the council but some are
looked after by a private company.
To request a change in road signage, such as double yellow lines
outside a house or business, or clear markings by a dropped kerb,
just fill in this
online form. This form can also be used to request new crash
barrier or railings; footway parking; applications for café tables
and chairs and other general enquiries.
Subways are cleaned once a month and any irregularities noticed
by the Cleansing Team, such as lights not working, are reported
back to the Structural Engineer or Street Lighting Engineer for
