    Hello!
    I want to get my local council to put up a hedgehog road sign – has anyone gone through the process and offer any advice?
    Best,

    Hedgehog warning road signs

    Good luck. Something has got to work sometime! Let us know how you get on.

    It would be great to hear if anyone else has had success with road signs.

    Hi Nic

    There’s a hedgehog warning on the road sign by a roundabout on the Llantrisant Road in Cardiff, it’s been there over 14 years but I don’t know how many people ever take notice of it. The only one I’ve ever seen.

    Hi Annie

    That’s interesting! So that must have been under the old rules – although they may be different in Wales – not sure.

    But good to hear someone was successful, even if we don’t know how!

    But yes, whether anyone takes any notice is another matter. One of the people I spoke to at the Council suggested that they might even have a negative impact. It may be a question of having a good idea of a local area, when deciding whether it was a good idea or not.

    Thanks, both, I will give it a go anyway!
    There are signs that you can put on your own land if you live on a busy road: https://shop.britishhedgehogs.org.uk/product/slow-down-warning-sign/
