The seven gateway signs will be at Wolverton Road, Little Linford Road, North Crawley Road, Renny Park Road, London Road, Marsh End Road, and Northampton Road.

Planners had previously granted the go-ahead to two of the signs, at the junction of Little Linford Road, and Pennycress Way, and a gateway sign in Hill View, Wolverton Road. The last five
