Say no to neon signs

Dear Ed

I have just received notification of a planning application for three large illuminated signs o­n 5.5m poles on land opposite Churchill School/Haven Drive. 

The application number is Y06/0285/SH, and I think this refers to the huge signs which were put up by Lidl when they first opened, and later removed presumably because they needed planning permission.

They looked absolutely awful - lit up the night sky and dominated the whole area.  If anyone else agrees with me, please contact the council at quoting the application number. 

We all know that Lidl is there, without having their neon signs in our faces!
