Apply for community signs

We support community facilities in Dorset by authorising the installation of suitable signs that guide those wishing to visit an approved facility via the most appropriate route. These signs are not advertisements.

Approved facilities include:

  • schools which are also used for community purposes
  • GP surgeries / medical centres
  • churches / places of worship
  • village halls
  • police and fire stations
  • other public buildings as appropriate

Fees and charges

  • stage 1: on approval of application - £100
  • stage 2: supply of signs - at cost +10% for administration
  • stage 3: ongoing maintenance - all future maintenance costs to be met by the applicant

Details of how to arrange payment are indicated on the application form.
