Street Furniture & Maintenance

Bedford Borough Council is responsible for much of the street furniture which is found on our roads and pavements. Street furniture is an essential element to our environment and serves a fundamental purpose of keeping Bedford a safe and enjoyable place to visit.

This includes street lights, traffic lights, street nameplates, public seats/benches, traffic & direction signs, guard rails, bollards etc.

 

Rural Parishes purchase their own public seats/benches. Some parishes will maintain furniture as well as bins. You may contact them in the first instance. Alternatively contact the Highways Helpdesk

 

Advertising on Street Furniture

Any advertising sign fixed to lampposts and other street 'furniture' may be illegal. Generally these are removed by the Council’. The Council will only allow black on yellow signs to be erected in approved locations on the highway.

 

For further information on street furniture or to report a concern/fault, please contact the Highways Helpdesk as detailed below:
