A planning application has been submitted for a huge LED advertising board in central Brixton – and the deadline to object is today.
As Brixton Buzz reported, the application for the illuminated billboard across the upper floors of the Prince of Wales had largely gone unnoticed. On Sunday, the day before the deadline to comment, there was only one objection registered.
However, since then, a large number of comments from the public have been added. At the time of writing there were 154 – most of them objections.
According to the planning application “the development has the potential to enhance the visibility of both the building and Brixton centre as a whole.”
But those opposed the ten moving advertising boards say they do not fit with the character of Brixton and have no benefit for the community. Other complaints include the added light pollution, safety concerns and a number have pointed out that the building is locally listed and in a Conservation Area.
