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.
