Banners and street decorations

If you would like to advertise a business or an event by attaching banners and street decorations to street furniture or across the highway in Frome, you must first seek permission from Somerset County Council.

If you would like to hang a banner between the buildings where Subway and Superdrug are located you will first need to seek the permission of Frome Town Council before making an application to Somerset County Council. We welcome applicants from both businesses and community groups however cannot accommodate requests for general business advertisements, only events. Please contact us on 01373 465757 or info@frometowncouncil.gov.uk

Please note that the Christmas Lights will be hung between Subway and Superdrug during November and are usually taken down during the first week of January, therefore we cannot accommodate any requests during this time.

Visit the Somerset County Council website to find out about requesting permission to hang banners and street decorations (including Christmas decorations) across the highway.

Somerset County Council (Mendip Office) can be contacted on countyroads-mendip@somerset.gov.uk or 0300 123 2224.

Please be aware that if you erect a banner without the correct permission it may well be removed without warning.
