Requests for new and temporary signs
Surrey County Council provides the signs necessary for safe and efficient navigation of the roads.
We recognise the importance of accurate, appropriate signing for safe navigation to a range of destinations, but also the distraction and clutter that can result from too many signs.
Please see our new road sign requests policy (PDF) for full details on how we decide which signs to provide and where.
How to request a new road sign
If you would like to request a new road sign, please read our current new road sign requests policy (PDF).
If your request meets the criteria, please complete our online form. One of our Engineers will assess the request and advise you on the outcome. We aim to do this within 28 days.
How to request a new tourist destination sign
For new tourist destination signs (brown and white signs), please complete and return our tourist signs application form (PDF).
The cost of assessing, designing, making and erecting signs must be met by the applicant.
There is a non-refundable charge of £145 to cover the cost of the initial assessment of this application. One of our Engineers will assess the request and advise you on the outcome. We aim to do this within 28 days.

We are currently reviewing our sign policy, and expect to issue a new policy in 2019.
