New signs on the way in Podsmead

2 posts in this topic

BUSINESSES in Podsmead are joining forces with Gloucester City Council to improve signage and spruce up the area.

A questionnaire carried out in December by the city council indicated that the majority of businesses in Pearce Way were in favour of signs which would help people find their premises, as well as tidying up the overgrown junction of Pearce Way and Bristol Road.

City council spokesman officer Natalie Wilder confirmed that, with the assistance of the council, a scheme has been put forward which could see the installation of professionally headed signage.

She said: "The council has agreed to contribute to the overall scheme to tidy up the corner whilst the businesses will decide on the exact form that the signage should take."

Gloucester City Councillor for Podsmead, Jennie Dallimore (Con) said: "The Bristol Road is part of Gloucester's industrial heartland and there are a growing number of modern professional industries doing business here.

"It is important that the overall appearance of the area reflects the professional image that the businesses deserve.


"Although individual businesses have taken action to improve the area by installing indicative signage to their premises, there are overgrown brambles at the junction and a collection of different sized signs.

"This project provides another opportunity to work collectively to install professional signage which will really improve the look of the area."

A drop-in session to consult with businesses in Pearce Way on signage will take place at the Ramblers Centre in Milton Avenue, Podsmead from 8am to 1pm on Thursday, April 7.

Traders will get the chance to ask questions and put forward any suggestions.

Businesses interested in attending can e-mail or call 01452 396974 to confirm their attendance.

Anything which helps local business' at the moment has to be a good idea. Some of the companies down there have been very generous in Podsmead recently so it's good to know that their needs are being catered for too.
