Further to this public engagement, online information sessions will also be taking place.

These will be on the following evenings: Tuesday 30 November, Thursday 2 December, Wednesday 8 December and Thursday 9 December from 7pm to 8pm.

The Dual Language Street Signs Policy applies to all languages.
