NTDTD approach applied to street signs

The pioneering “non-top down, top down” (NTDTD) approach of the coalition government continues apace with this beautiful case study, courtesy once again of our friends at the Department for Communities and Local Government:

Councils will today be urged to get rid of unnecessary signs, railings and advertising hoardings in a bid to make streets tidier and less confusing for motorists and pedestrians. Communities Secretary Eric Pickles and Transport Secretary Philip Hammond are concerned that the character of the country’s urban spaces is being damaged and have written to councils leaders calling on them to reduce the number of signs and other ‘street clutter’…

To help councils do this the Department for Transport is reviewing traffic signs policy and new advice on how to reduce clutter will be published later this year.
