Barnard Castle farm shop wins sign battle

An organic farm shop near Barnard Castle is now able to put up a sign to direct customers from the A66.

This decision follows a battle between Cross Lane Organic Farm Shop and The Highways Agency, which stated that the installation would be a safety risk to drivers on the road, reports the Teesdale Mercury.

However, following a petition that was signed by 2,000 people, Durham County Council gave the store permission to erect the sign.

Peter Coverdale, owner of the business, told the news provider: "I'm disappointed it took the best part of a year for one sign. We still have other signs to get. Ideally we would like one on the corner of our site."

While Cross Lane Organic Farm Shop is celebrating the arrival of its new sign, the Western Daily Press has reported that a sign near Blagdon Hill has been removed due to safety worries.

Somerset County Council said that it was an obstruction and distracted motorists.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801370377-ADNFCR
