Almost 200 roadside signs are to be taken away in Feock in a bid to de-clutter the streets.

Cornwall Council claimed that around 180 warning signs in the Feock parish will be removed subsequent to an audit of road signs in the area, reports This Is Cornwall.

The authority has claimed that removing the signs would reduce maintenance and energy costs, while also being good for the environment.

Speaking to the news provider, Jeremy Edwards from Cornwall Council said: “Once we had catalogued all the signs in the Feock area, staff from the Council’s Transportation Service liaised with the parish council to determine which signs were needed and those that could be taken down.

“Feock Parish Council has been very keen over recent years to address the issue in the area and has been key to the project’s success.”

While removing signs can easily de-clutter areas, it is vital that authorities fully consider if the notices will be better used on the roads.

Removing a potentially life-saving sign would be a potentially devastating move, meaning due consideration must be given.
