3. Write as much as you’d like about your objections. Below are some points you could include.
- There are many residential properties along Muller Road making this site unsuitable for a digital billboard development. The development would cause serious harm to the amenity of the area, particularly due to the proximity of nearby Eastville Park.
- A digital screen would present a distraction for drivers which is unacceptable in this residential area. In addition, traffic often queues along Muller Road ahead of joining the busy M32 junction. There were minor accidents very close to the billboard location in 2014.
