Shopfront and Signage Guidelines published
Meath County Council has published Shopfront and Signage Guidelines to provide assistance to owners, designers, and planners in identifying and implementing the principles of good shopfront design. Author of the Guidelines, Jill Chadwick (Conservation Officer) says that ‘the guide is intended to promote good quality design in the towns and villages of Meath’. The shopfront forms an important part of the street’s character, as it constitutes a highly visible part of the building at street level. Cllr. Maria Murphy, Cathaoirleach of the Council, welcomed the publication and commented that ‘well designed and well maintained shopfronts make for a more attractive street for those who live in, work in or visit our towns and villages’.
The guidance was published as an objective of the County Meath Development Plan 2013-2019 and an action of the County Meath Heritage Plan 2015-2020. Copies of the document are available from Council offices and libraries and can be downloaded from Meath.ie
