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

Comment submitted date: Thu 07 Mar 2019

Ealing Civic Society objects to this application for electronic communications apparatus. Whilst we support the removal of obsolete telephone kiosks, we maintain our objections to any proliferation of unnecessary and unwanted street clutter.

In addition, we draw the attention of planners to the recent High Court judgement upholding the decision of Westminster City Council that this type of equipment serves a dual purpose of communications and advertising and so should not benefit from permitted development rights. As they state, Prior Notification is thus inapplicable and a full planning application should be submitted.
