City has been blighted by forest of yellow signs
Walking back from the Holburne Museum into the centre of Bath I was dismayed by the number of road and parking signs that disfigure our beautiful city.
Views of Pulteney Bridge are blighted by a forest of signs. On one signpost I counted four individual signs. Walking along Great Pulteney Street into Laura Place, I counted over 30 bright yellow parking suspensions signs. Why did the council think it was a good idea to put these up two months before the Bath half-marathon— from early January to early March?
If I was tourist and had travelled half way round the world to take photographs of Bath's exquisite Georgian architecture, I would be hard-pressed to explain to my friends why every picture contained numerous bright yellow signs.
Surely these only needed to go up a couple of weeks before the event and why so may of them? Obviously to comply with the council's own ludicrously overcomplicated rules on parking.

How much taxpayers' money is being wasted on raising so many permanent and temporary road signs around Bath? Supposedly protecting Pulteney Bridge from traffic has resulted in it being permanently shielded with disfiguring signs. Well done B&NES!
