Visit Shifnal campaign set back as banners banned.

Visit Shifnal campaign set back as banners banned.

The local business which aims to help Shifnal businesses and tourists has had a set back this week after they were forced to remove eight banners from around the town.

A spokesman for the organisation told Telford Live that they had an official email from Shropshire Council as allegedly someone in Shifnal had complained to Shifnal Town Council.

“There were 8 banners around town in safe but prominent positions but also not interfering with any businesses or traffic flow. They are professionally designed and look very good.”

The spokesman said that the email quoted Anti Social Behaviour Act and Town and Country Act.

    Some people. But it would work better if you put them up outside the Shifnal area to encourage people to go their. Just saying

    What’s anti-social about a “Visit Shifnal” banner? Unless the writer of the email was being smacked with one…

    These bored lot were warned that they had to obtain planning permission, but they never listened. Crazy idea putting up banners promoting Shifnal in Shifnal.

    This is not an organisation but a business, charging local businesses for website and social media promotion. They should know what can and cannot be done, they don’t represent all businesses or interests in Shifnal – just those that pay.
