THE Barracada pub in Royston has been given a month to replace its "ghastly" signs.
Members of Royston Town Council's planning committee gave their support to plans to replace the current signs which were erected without planning permission.
Members learned that North Herts District Council was on the verge of taking legal action over the signs.
Papers for a prosecution over erecting the unauthorised signs were due to be presented to Stevenage Magistrates' Court

The committee said that once North Herts District Council had approved the new signs they should be in place in a 28-day period.

- The historic hanging sign outside Barclays Bank in the High Street, Royston, is to be re-instated.
Originally, Royston Town Council's planning committee said it could not support a new sign on the Grade II listed building.
And now Barclays Bank has said that the original was "incorrectly removed".
Cllr Kennedy said that it had been a case where "common sense had prevailed".
