The Planning Authority APPROVES express advertisement consent for the fascia sign (Sign 3) to the front of the building within the site and one fence-mounted sign (sign 2) to the northern (left hand) side of the site’s access in accordance with your application which was registered on 16 March 2021 and the plans submitted therewith, subject to the following conditions:

 

CONDITIONS 

 

1This consent shall expire at the end of a period of five years from the date of this notice.

The Planning Authority REFUSES express advertisement consent for one pole-mounted sign (sign 1) and one fence-mounted sign (sign 2) to the southern side of the site’s access for the following reason:   

1. The advertisements (sign 1 and one sign 2 to the southern (right hand) side of the site’s access), by virtue of their number, close position to each other, and in conjunction with other signs in a limited area to the front of the site, would result in an excessive proliferation of advertisements in this predominantly residential area that would detrimentally affect the visual amenity and residential character of the locality, contrary to the objectives of policy NBE9 of the adopted Hart Local Plan - Strategy and Sites 2016-2032, saved policies GEN1 and URB24 of the Hart District Council Local Plan (Replacement) 1996 – 2006 and paragraph 132 of the NPPF.

 

 

Minutes:

Display of 1 x non illuminated mounted signage, 2 x non illuminated off fence mounted signage and 1 x non illuminated fascia signage.

 

Members considered the application and discussed the following:

·       Whether three signs were required at the entrance.

·       The semi-rural location and the possibility of increased traffic.

·       If the signs changed the nature of the environment and were they visually unappealing.

·       Permissions for Use Class B8 on a residential road suggested large signs were not commensurate with that expectation.

·       Whether the signs are not in keeping with the site’s Use Class.

·       That some of the signs could be approved and some refused.

·       Whether the fence could be seen from either direction.

·       Over emphasising the commercial nature of the business and proliferation.

 

Members were informed:

·       That investigations were ongoing regarding the use of the site and its possible change of class.

·       Potential breaches of planning conditions may had taken place and enforcement were involved.

 

Members voted for an amendment to the proposal which was carried.
