CONTROVERSIAL signs on the Barracuda pub in Royston have been removed - days before a deadline which could have led to legal action.
The pub had originally erected signs on the building - the old Royston post office - without planning permission.
And it was told that the signs for such a building were not acceptable.
North Herts District Council insisted that a new plan should be submitted.
And it warned that legal action would be taken over the offending signs.
Plans for the new signs were approved and the pub was given until January 28 to erect them on the building.
Work was carried out on Monday
# Meanhwhile, the pub has submitted an application to the district council's licensing department to move its smoking area.
It wants the area to be at front of the pub in Melbourn Street instead of behind.
The move comes after months of complaints from nearby residents about noise from the pub.
The consultation period for the proposals ended on Tuesday and there were no representations against the scheme..
