Mrs Ann Chapman Chair, Walpole Residents' Association 15 Lammas Park Road Ealing London W5 5JD (Objects)

Comment submitted date: Mon 15 Apr 2019

Walpole Residents' Association objects to this application for a structure with digital illuminated advertisement displays. Whilst we support the removal of obsolete telephone kiosks, we maintain our objections to any proliferation of unnecessary and unwanted street clutter, including unwanted and intrusive advertisements.

I write on behalf of Ealing Town Centre (ETC) Conservation Area Advisory Panel (CAAP) to object to the proposal contained in these applications.

The applications should be refused because the Prior Notification Telecoms is invalid and full planning permission is required.
In any case, there are many grounds for refusal even if the correct type of application was made.
- The height, scale and siting of these structures are excessively prominent and visually detrimental to the character and appearance of the Ealing Town Centre Conservation Area resulting in an unacceptable level of harm to the character of the CA.
- There is restriction of pedestrian flow in an increasingly crowded town centre and major distraction for vehicles.
- Ealing Council's policy to improve the public realm with initiatives such as repaving streets and reducing clutter are harmed by these structures.
- There are potential harms to public amenity such as data privacy and public safety
These structures are being refused right across the UK.
Ealing has previously refused such structures and the appeals against these refusals were all rejected by the Planning Inspectorate (see the numerous decisions to reject by Planning Inspector I Jenkins dated 4 December 2017.)

More detail is in document submitted to case officers and which can be published in Public Access by them.

Ms Jo Winters Ealing Civic Society 28 Ranellagh Road Ealing LONDON W5 5RJ (Objects)

Comment submitted date: Thu 07 Mar 2019

Ealing Civic Society objects to this application for a structure with digital illuminated advertisement displays. Whilst we support the removal of obsolete telephone kiosks, we maintain our objections to any proliferation of unnecessary and unwanted street clutter, including advertisements. The neighbourhood plan policy PR3 refers to the promotion of free movement and avoidance of unnecessary signage and clutter in public areas. Erecting these advertisement displays would contravene the plan. Hence, this application should be rejected, especially since the apparatus used would be sited within the Ealing Town Centre Conservation Area .

Mr Central Ealing Neighbourhood Forum (CENF) c/o Ealing Town Hall New Broadway LONDON W5 2BY (Objects)

Comment submitted date: Mon 04 Mar 2019

Central Ealing Neighbourhood Forum objects to the granting of advertisement consent for the proposed equipment. If telecoms equipment is essential, it should not be used as a platform for visually intrusive and unasked-for advertising messages.
