Football club's signs could be at risk

A High Peak football club's 17 perimeter advertising hoardings could be at risk.

Buxworth FC’s retrospective application for advertisement consent to keep the signs goes to Monday’s High Peak Development Control Committee meeting.

Councillors, who will be taking to Zoom again due to Covid-19, are being recommended to refuse it.

The signs have been there since 2018, in a bid to generate additional sponsorship income, and the club says it was unaware that advertising consent was needed.

The borough council received six objections to the hoardings, including claims they were in ‘bright colours’ and that there were ‘too many of them’.
