My computer shop is tucked away in an industrial estate not too far from some major roads.

I’m going to stick some direction signs up, Anyone know how much I will be fined if I am caught doing this?

Advice please.

Don't know, but at a guess you'll be buried in an iron coffin with spikes on the inside to discourage others from breaching planning regs.

My guess is that you would be told to take them down before it came to a fine...

Ninereeds, who does your business insurance?? I'm having trouble sourcing some.

Also, hope you don't mind, but how much rent are you paying at your industrial site?

round here the council just seem to slap a big "illegal" sticker over your sign. primary impact is on the estate agents.

there is a mechanism for getting signs put up - ask the council and the AA/RAC (they offer short term signage for special events so must be up on the rules)
