supermarket's billboard plan draws council objection
councillors have raised an objection over plans by supermarket
Lidl to introduce a new advertisement billboard outside its Burnham-On-Sea
in Oxford Street has applied for planning permission to introduce
a six metre wide billboard built on timber uprights in its car
town councillors on the planning applications commitee say the
structure would be out of keeping.
of the Town Council consider that a sign 6.3metres wide and 3.3metres
high would be visibly intrusive to neighbouring properties and
be totally out of character with the houses the other side of
the fence," said clerk Eileen Shaw.
District Council's case officer has recommended the application
is given consent, therefore the scheme will be considered by Sedgemoor's
Development Control Commitee next week for a final decision.
