Enforcement action is in hand concerning Salisbury Church at the NW corner of Grange Road and Causewayside. The building is deconsecrated and in commercial use but remains B-listed and is in the Grange conservation area. The enforcement relates to a "large multi-coloured banner" approximately 8.6m by 1.27m attached to the scaffolding on the Grange Road elevation which has been in place since March 2018. The banner was positioned in October 2018.

The Enforcement Action Report notes:

"The banner is displayed on an elevation of the building which otherwise contains limited and muted advertisements. The banner, by way of its size and garish colours, is detrimental to the amenity of the area and to the character and appearance of the conservation area. Its positioning, close to the traffic controlled junction at Causewayside/Grange Road and Salisbury Place is such that it acts as a distraction to passing motorists and is likely therefore to be detrimental to public safety. The owner of the building has been advised that the banner is unacceptable and should be removed but has neglected to do so. .....It is therefore recommended that the use of formal enforcement powers..... is justified and that formal enforcement action is authorised."

A full copy of the report is available here.

The banner has been removed and the case closed. In its closing report, the Council noted:

"Authorisation to serve an Advertisement Enforcement Notice was given on 05 February 2019 and the Notice was served on interested parties on 15 March 2019. The Notice became effective on 12 April 2019 and was not appealled. The date for compliance was 24 April 2019 and , when the banner was not removed, the interested parties were informed that direct action to remove the banner and resolve the breach of control would be initiated. On 08 May 2019 the enquirer e-mailed to note that the banner has been removed. The breach of control has now been resolved and no further action should be taken."
