Here is the background. There are three applications for three signs.
The first was lodged on 24th February this year (application No 12/00570/ADV). It was notified in the weekly planning bulletin of 5th March and granted via delegated authority on 17th April. This has now been erected.
The second was lodged on 20th June this year (12/02171/ADV). It was notified in the weekly planning bulletin on and was fast track delegated and approved on 27th July. That one is currently being erected.
The third is was lodged on 15th August (12/02808/ADV) and and is the subject of the current correspondence. It is likely to come before the Planning Committee in the next few weeks. It proposes an illuminated board which will fit (in an angled way) on the back of the first (above), in other words facing people and traffic travelling eastwards in Holyrood Park Road.
I note the twenty or so comments about the third one. As far as I can see the first two were not picked up by the local community or by myself. (I'll not be commenting as I am on the Planning Committee as it may come before me.)
The advertising regulations have some differences from building planning rules. Specifically and for example:
- The assessment standard is for amenity and public safety (not the range of other criteria for buildings)
- Applications do not require neighbour notification
- Decisions may disregard other advertisements (ie precedent)
