Three large illuminated billboards are being planned for Bricklayers Arms roundabout. We were just finally enjoying the small improvement to the central area of the roundabout when something like this horrendous proposal comes along. The application amazingly suggests that glowing/flashing billboards will somehow liven up the area and add an architectural interest. Wow, that is a reach if I ever heard one. Hopefully the planners won't get pulled in by the lure of the cash and will respect the many residents who live in the area. Click through on the link from this SE1 story on the plans and email Southwark to voice your opinion. Deadline for comments is the 26th February.
Do they really think they can get away with dressing this up as somehow a positive addition to the area? Thoughts?
