Project Eyesore: Update

The object of her disaffection - Sue Luxton wants this sign gone... for good

Right, there's been far-too-much sunny frivolity on this site lately - what with cycling reunions, drinking plans and and sure-fire, get-rich-quick property investment speculation.

So, following hot on the heels of the Upper Brockley Road demolition, let's have another dose of urban decay, with a Project Eyesore update.

Project Eyesore seeks to highlight Brockley's worst offences against the public realm. Over on her blog, Cllr Sue Luxton has been chronicling her struggle on this particualrly unlovely stretch of Brockley Road.

She says:

"On Tuesday I posted about a minor success I'd had getting an illegal advertising board removed from outside Brockley Kitchen. I may have spoken too soon. Yesterday I opened my councillor post to discover notification of a planning application for, yes, you've guess it, a "The retention of one double sided illuminated free standing advertisement display unit outside 258 Brockley Road SE4."

The advertising board is just one of many problems in that spot. Sue's list also includes:

"A BT exchange box, a redundant post box, a number of commercial waste bins stored there, railings [and] illegal pavement parking."
