The council has received complaints from blind and disabled people
A council in South Oxfordshire has decided not to ban pavement advertising boards after a campaign by traders.
Henley-on-Thames Town Council was considering banning the A-boards after hearing they were making it difficult for people to get along the pavement.
At a meeting on Tuesday councillors voted not to go ahead with the ban.
Lorraine Hillier, who runs a coffee shop in the town, presented a 500 signature petition opposing the ban at the meeting.
"It is such a good result, I'm so pleased", she said.
"I just wanted some dialogue with traders before considering the ban.
"These boards are vital to business."
