New take away opened up on Trinity Street (yesterday I think)
Bit disturbed by the new sign they have erected.
Surely, they cant put this up without planning consent?
Have emailed the planning office for their views.
Any thoughts?

I live a few doors down. The previous takeaway had to remove their illuminated sign as the buildings are Grade II listed.

I suspect the new business will have to remove that, and the protruding sign. I did tell them that as they were installing in an attempt to be helpful.

That aside it's a lot smarter looking than the previous business, and the menu looks good (albeit fairly standard) and I look forward to trying.

Thanks for the update

I also agree it looks so much better - a nice painted sign would be preferable !!

Lets see what the planning officer comes back with

Just to say that I have referred the issue to Planning Enforcement as the illuminated sign is not acceptable and does not have permission.

Many thanks

The illuminated signs are not acceptable indeed.
Especially the round sign which is too low and too close to the next house door and windows.
Trinity St should keep its heritage integrity to the highest standards and all its residents should share passion for the original architectural features as well as for good design in general.

It is unacceptable Southwark council allows such kind of tasteless brightness especially on the facade of a grade 2 listed buildings.

A painted sign would be much better and more appropriate. The majority of the successful small businesses in central and east London have seen their fortune in keeping their signage true to the local historic commercial features. Masala Dubba should do the same, catch the trend, and feed the locals without reminiscences of the 80s.
