Devon County Council has a policy to remove unauthorised signs from the roadside in accordance with Section 132 of the Highways Act. Discretion is exercised in town and village centres with regards to displays and goods outside local shops, and with local fetes and charitable events, but if the sign obstructs the pavement or cycleway and results in a significant hazard to pedestrians, or interferes with visibility for vehicles, it will be removed.
