OVERZEALOUS highways officials are being called on to remove 'unnecessary' road signs cluttering a North Somerset village.
Banwell parish leaders say the number of signs is harming the village's character and want some to be removed.
They claim three 'road narrowing' warning signs within 50 yards of each other in West Street is unnecessary.
Parish council chairman Liz Shayler said: "We are concerned the number of signs could be harming the area's conservation status.
"I believe one sign is enough to tell everybody that the road narrows ahead."
The council has already had success removing signs in the village after three advertising hoardings for a nursing home were removed.
Councillors hope to report back on their request to remove the signs at next month's council meeting.
