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 planning@shepway.gov.uk quoting the application number. 

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