Digital Billboard

The digital billboard adjacent to Feethams roundabout operates 365 days per year. It is switched on from 6am to 2am the following day and has up to nine advertisements in rotation at any one time.

The Council has now opened up the opportunity for a limited number of businesses and non-profit organisations to place their advertisements on the billboard, sitting in the same rotation cycle as the Council's advertisements. This will give your advertisement the opportunity to be seen a minimum of 50 times per hour. Priority will be given to local organisations.

Our terms and conditions

The Darlington Borough Council marketing team will review all advertisements before they are published. Advertisements placed on the billboard must comply with;

  1. Road safety standards. For more information about these please see ‘Outdoor advertisements and signs: a guide for advertisers’. Due to its proximity of the road, the billboard can only display static images, and the images cannot be a distraction to drivers.
  2. Advertising Standards Agency rules.
  3. Our local restrictions which include;
    1. No political organisations, political campaigns, political figures.
    2. No adverts that are in conflict with Darlington Borough Council public health and other strategic priorities.
    3. No advertising that conflicts with the financial interests of the Council. This helps to ensure the ongoing provision of services that are highly valued by a significant number of residents. This list will be regularly reviewed but currently includes;
      1. Gyms and leisure centres
      2. Private fostering agencies
      3. Promoting legal claims against the Council
      4. Theatre performances that are in direct competition with shows at Darlington Hippodrome
  4. Every effort is made to ensure the billboard continues to function correctly between 6am and 2am. Some issues are beyond our control (such as power cuts) and unfortunately we are unable to provide an out of hours service should there be any issues outside of the office hours.
