Happy heatwave

The advert on wheels parked on Coulgate Street is due to be destroyed. With thanks to Monkeyboy for the photo.

Still not as obnoxious as the flower beds on the station's ramp. What a brilliant idea that was.

Worst. Trolling. Ever.

Another honest business man refused the right to advertise because he doesn't sell artisan bread.

Shame.

Brockley Nick said...

Second worst.

Monkeyboy said...

Tweated this to @MPSLewisham @MPSBrockleySgt who passed it on the the Lewisham council streetscape enforcer @NigelJT. Sorted the next day, social media, seems to work. well done all.

Hurray! .... although it was a sure fire banker for playing car snooker.(obviously using the word "car" in the loosest possible sense given its primary purpose was not vehicular). I may celebrate with some artisan bread tomorrow.

Good work. What are the grounds for getting rid of it? Did the tax disc run out? Next task: get rid of the one by the Shell garage.

Brockley Jon said...

Yes, that was going to be my next question, as there are quite a few dotted around SE23 that I'd like to see the back of!!

Monkeyboy said...

yep, if the tax expires the council can deal with it. report on the LoveLewisham app or tweet @NigelJT. not sure but i hope the registered owner gets the bill

Its about time. Hogging a much needed parking space at the station for the last 6 months!

Adam said...

Yes, well done. It occupied useful space. Btw I thought Coulgate was supposed to receive a facelift and pedestrianization. Does anybody know whether it is still the case?

Brockley Nick said...

Yes, as part of the redevelopment of the MOT garage. Not likely to be this year.

Planning Problems said...

I'd love for the other adverts on wheels to go, Lewisham Highways can't do anything if they are taxed etc, but I reckon if you ask the Ward Councillors to push the planners, you'll find that the Advertisement Regulations 2007 Schedule 1 Class B. on page 17 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2007/783/pdfs/uksi_20070783_en.pdf only allow adverts on a vehicle if the vehicle is not principally used for the display of advertisements, I.e. parked up permanently. Unauthorised display of an advertisement unlike other planning related misdemeanours is actually a criminal offence and the Council can prosecute. Although in reality this might be difficult, it would do no harm to send the owners a warning letter which do the trick of getting them to shift the vehicles.

YEAH - I hate all those cars littering the roads in Brockley that advertise the astisan bread for sale. How do they get away with it?
