The town and county councils are working together to cut back the amount of boards and goods for sale which they say are an eyesore and safety hazard in the town centre.
They have drawn up a new policy now being circulated among shopkeepers to alert them to a crackdown which will take place in the New Year.
The policy has been unanimously approved by the town council which will monitor any abuse of the new regulations.
