Godalming Town Council administers the banner site across Wharf Street in Godalming. The banner site is intended to enable community groups to publicise their activities.

Applications to display a banner to advertise events are welcome from local charitable, community and other similar or not-for-profit organisations, based within Surrey or serving the local area. Priority is given to Godalming-based organisations (please note that no sponsor details are to appear on the banner because it is to be placed over a public highways).

About street furniture

Street furniture is the collective term for bus stops, benches, litter bins, noticeboards, railings and other fixtures in what we call the “public realm” by which we mean they are in the open, on the street

 

Who looks after street furniture?

Responsibility for street furniture is not a simple matter. Godalming’s bins, benches and bus stops could be the responsibility of Godalming Town Council, Waverley Borough Council or Surrey County Council.

Contact us if you have a query about a specific item of street furniture; we should be able to point you in the right direction.

 

New street furniture

If you feel an area could benefit from a bin, bench or a new bus shelter please let us know.

 

How to report a problem

Contact us to report a problem with a bin, bench or bus shelter etc. and we will pass it onto the correct organisation. Contact: 01483 523575 Email: operations@godalming-tc.gov.uk
