Roadside supermarket sign in Beaconsfield rejected
SAINSBURY’S hopes of erecting a sign to advertise its store from the roadside in Beaconsfield have been shot down by town councillors.
A request has been made to Bucks County Council for a ‘Superstore’ sign on the A355 at the junction with Maxwell Road.
BCC put the question to the town council for discussion, with members overwhelmingly against the idea when it was raised at a planning meeting last week.
And after a discussion, the request was unanimously thrown out by the committee.
Former Beaconsfield mayor Cllr Alan Walters said: “My worry is if we agree to this then what next?"
"Will Waitrose and then every other store want to put a sign up? How far does it go?”
And Cllr Steve Jones added it would be doing some of the town’s smaller businesses a disservice if it was allowed to go ahead, saying he was not comfortable with the idea.
