Banners will advertise one of the Sid Valley’s most iconic shops if a planning application is approved.

The owners of Fields of Sidmouth hope to install two double-sided fabric signs that will project from the Market Place store.

The application says ‘extensive work’ is being undertaken to refurbish the internal elements of the department store and its entire façade has been completely redecorated.

It adds: “With the new signage that has been installed, it is now felt that it is important to ‘signpost’ the main entrance with signage that projects from the building.

“The proposed new banners will be sympathetic in scale and design to the new building shopfront.”

Work has been carried out over the 
last 12 months and 
will continue during 2018.

The banners will measure 1.8 metres by 60 centimetres.

East Devon District Council will decide the fate of the application.
