Bothwell Street fascia signs disallowed

Leith Central CC submitted an objection to a planning application for ‘two illuminated fascia signs’ on Bothwell Street. Our grounds were

  • negative light pollution on neighouring residential properties
  • wasteful energy consumption
  • safety concerns caused by reflected sunlight from large surfaces
  • setting a precedent for what would be an alien element in Edinburgh’s townscape.

We are vey pleased that Edinburgh Council has rejected this application. It seems like a small victory for local democracy.
